Information Minister Hasan Mahmud said BNP and NGO personalities who are always busy criticizing the government cannot be found beside countrymen amid pandemic.
“BNP did photo sessions instead of standing beside the common people in the beginning of the epidemic. And presently during the second wave, they (BNP) cannot be found even with binoculars,” he said, addressing a function at Awami League president’s political office in Dhanmondi on Sunday.
AL Relief and Social Welfare sub-committee organised the function to distribute health protection equipment including high flow cannula among different hospitals in Chattogram, Rangamati, Bandarban, Nilphamari and Bogura.
AL Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Health Affairs Secretary Dr Rokeya Sultana and Organising Secretary Sakhawat Hossain Shafiq, among others, addressed the function.
Hasan said some NGO’s (non government organizations) which did photo sessions by giving something to few people and sent those pictures to different funders also cannot be found during the COVID-19 situation. Of them, some are busy in criticizing the government, he added.
Terming the politics as vow, the minister said five central leaders of Awami League died due to Coronavirus. They all stood beside the common people, he added.
