A legal notice has been served seeking the resignation of Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen in 48 hours, over his recent statement on India.
Supreme Court lawyer Ershad Hossain Rashed sent the notice on Sunday.
The notice said: “You cannot ask for India’s to help to keep Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in power, because the constitution says the people are the source of all power.”
“You have made statements that go against Bangladesh’s constitution. You have lost the right to remain in a minister’s position,” the notice reads.
On Thursday, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen reportedly said that he urged the Indian government to back Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina so that she can stay in power at a Janmashtami program in Chittagong.
However, the following day, the foreign minister claimed he told the Indian government that Bangladesh would be happy if India helps the country in maintaining stability, noting that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wants stability and communal harmony in Bangladesh.
