‘AL doing politics with relief meant for the Rohingya’
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said the ruling Awami League party has been doing politics with relief supplies meant for the Rohingya. “The government is only putting up a front of handing out relief material sent by individuals, different local and foreign organisations and international agencies,” he said. Questioning the role of the government in the Rohingya issue, the BNP leader said strong national unity is needed to contain the aggression of Myanmar. “The Rohingya crisis cannot be resolved until all participants involved are working in unison at the national level,” Fakhrul said while briefing reporters at the Cox's Bazar district unit BNP office on Thursday. Terming the influx of Rohingya refugees a national crisis, he accused the AL-led government of not responding to his party's call for national unity to help tackle the issue. “Instead, the ruling party leaders are making controversial comments over the call [for national unity],” he said, adding that AL was showing double standards about helping the Rohingya, though it refused to do so when the fresh influx began on August 25. According to him, the government deployed the army to tackle the Rohingya issue following BNP's demand in this regard. BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan and the party chairperson's adviser Abdus Salam, among others, attended the press briefing.
