Dhaka, May 3: Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) senior joint Secretary General RuhulKabirRizvi has alleged that the government was making fun on the people’s hunger during the COVID-19 situation. Addressing during a relief distribution programmeorganised by the party’s Dhaka18 unit in the capital’s Dhakkhan area here on Saturday and Sunday, MrRizvi said, "Serving people cannot be done in this way.
During the dreadful pandemic, the government was doing joke with the people’s hunger without tackling the famine like situation. You will not be able to tackle such a disaster by doing joke." SM Jahangir Hossain, president of Jubodal Dhaka North, was in the chair. MrRizvi alleged that the ruling Awami League (AL) activists were now harvesting immature Boro paddy of the farmers only to show that they were with the farmers. Though BNP is not in power, they are doing their best as per their ability to stand by the poor people, he observed. (UNI)
