Fakhrul said cooperation between the government and opposing parties may play a crucial role in overcoming the coronavirus crisis

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has called on the government to form a national committee to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

“We’re not criticizing the government for the sake of opposing its activities. We want to cooperate with the government in order to effectively tackle the current situation,” he told reporters at his Uttara residence, reports UNB.

“No national committee has been formed yet. Bangladesh is a country of 160 million people…it’ll be good for the country if a national unity can be forged to tackle such a serious crisis. We think there’s still time to form a national committee,” the BNP leader added. 

Fakhrul urged Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to take an initiative to constitute the national committee comprising politicians, experts and civil society members.

He emphasized that members of opposing parties do not need to be sitting next to each other to form this united front, as they can hold meetings through videoconferencing.

He also said cooperation between the government and opposing parties may play a crucial role in overcoming the coronavirus crisis.

As per official figures, Bangladesh government has so far reported 5 deaths and 51 infections from Covid-19, a new strain of coronavirus.
