Awami League joint general secretary and Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud has said the leaders of BNP hold press briefings from isolation at their home to blame the government on different issues, reports BSS.

“They (BNP leaders) did not come forward to help the people. Leaders and workers of AL and members of some voluntary organizations are beside the people all over the country,” he said, speaking at a function to handover medical equipment to the Upazila Health Complex at Rangunia Upazila Auditorium Friday afternoon.

The minister also distributed cheques for government grants to the families of those killed in the wild elephant attack.

He said BNP leaders are just staying at home and criticizing the government without helping the poor people.

“On the other hand, neither the AL nor the government is sitting idle, rather they continue helping the people… I am too working in the field. When the people of the country are affected, there is no reason to sit idle in the house,” he added.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer Masudur Rahman presided over the function while Upazila Vice Chairman Shafiqul Islam, Assistant Superintendent of Police Abul Kalam Azad, Divisional Forest Officer Abu Naser Mohammad Yasin Newaz, Upazila Health Officer Dr Rehanul Islam, Upazila AL General Secretary Engineer Shamsul Alam Talukder, Chairmen Idris Asgar, Mujibul Huq Hiru and Upazila Awami League Office Secretary Abu Taher, among others, addressed the function as special guests.

After the function, the information minister visited Rangunia Upazila Health Complex and inquired about the medical facilities there.

Dr Hasan Mahmud said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed the leaders and workers of AL to stay beside the people.

He requested the party leaders and workers of Rangunia upazila to help the people.

Dr. Hasan said since the onset of the coronavirus epidemic, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working hard to protect the people of the country from this virus.

He said more than 60,000 families in Rangunia have been provided with food aid and the relief activities are still ongoing. “Thousands of people have also been providing relief through our family organization NNK Foundation,” he added.
