Calling upon all the political parties of the country to work together to address the ongoing coronavirus crisis, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said the opposition parties also have the responsibility to make people aware of corona pandemic.
“In any crisis or disaster, everyone irrespective of his or her party affiliation has to be responsible. Those who are in opposition politics also have the responsibility to make the country’s people aware if they do politics for people,” he told a regular press briefing on contemporary issues at his official residence on Wednesday.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said during the coronavirus pandemic, protecting the lives of people should be the politics of a political party, but the opposition BNP is continuously lying.
Coming down heavily on BNP for its ill-politics, he said the BNP is playing the old records without standing by the people even during the high level of coronavirus infection.
The AL general secretary said the country achieved an astonishing economic growth under the bold and visionary leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at a time when the global economy faced a setback due to the coronavirus pandemic.
