BSS: Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq today said misinterpretation is taking place regarding the number of members of parliaments (MPs) for political reasons.
“Those who are saying the number of MPs in the country is 648 are not interpreting the constitution correctly.
They are making such statements to create confusions in the public mind intentionally for political reasons. Or they don’t have enough knowledge about these articles of the constitution,” the law minister said, quoting articles 56, 123 and 148 of the constitution.
He came up with observations while replying questions of newsmen at his secretariat office.
“As the tenure of 11th national parliament will end on January 29, members of that parliament will get state benefits till that date.
