Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Tuesday alleged that BNP is doing politics over coronavirus instead of standing by the people.
“They (BNP) should have stood by the people instead of doing politics as it’s a global crisis,” he said while briefing reporters at the Secretariat.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday alleged that the government is trying to hide information about coronavirus and they disclosed it only after the foreign delegates declined to attend the Mujib Borsho programmes.
“Mirza Fakhrul’s comments over the coronavirus are tantamount to mockery with the people of the country,” the minister said, adding that all should work together at this crisis moment forgetting all differences.
He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has rescheduled programmes taken to celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in public interest after the detection of coronavirus in the country. “However, no programme has been cancelled.”
