Quader urged all to celebrate the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr staying at their present locations to resist the deadly Covid-19

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today termed the Indian variant of Covid-19 as more dangerous and urged all to remain conscious in maintaining health guidelines properly.

“Indian variant of Covid-19 has been found in Bangladesh. Our little bit of negligence may cause danger. Under the circumstances, we all should remain conscious,” he said while addressing a discussion and relief distribution ceremony at IDEB Bhaban in Dhaka.

From his official residence, Quader virtually joined the discussion titled “Mujib Barsho and what to do in facing the deadly Covid-19 crisis” organized by Bangabandhu Diploma Engineers Council.

Mentioning that neighbouring India is now severely reeling under the spike of the vicious second wave of Covid-19, he said though India is famous for oxygen production, the country is now in acute oxygen crisis and people’s sufferings know no bounds.

Even footpaths in India have turned into crematorium while the experts warned that a third wave of the Covid-19 is likely to hit India, he said, adding that Bangladesh is getting danger messages from India.

The minister said under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the people of Bangladesh successfully faced different natural and man-made disasters in the past.

He hoped Bangladesh would be able to face the ongoing pandemic-induced crisis successfully under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

“We will have to build forts of consciousness at our houses to save ourselves from the pandemic,” he said.

Quader urged all to celebrate the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr staying at their present locations to resist the deadly Covid-19 responding to the call of the premier.

Instead of making united efforts in facing the common enemy coronavirus, political blame-game is going on in the country, he said, adding that Sheikh Hasina’s government is being blamed for everything though Bangladesh remains comparatively better than other countries in the pandemic under the courageous, farsighted and humanitarian leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

He said Sheikh Hasina’s government has been able to control the situation to a good extent which is acknowledged by her critics too.
