Gono Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain  has urged the country's people, including his party leaders and activists, to stand beside flood-hit people with relief materials at different parts of the country.

He made the call at an emergency meeting of the party held at his Motijheel chamber on Wednesday.

Dr Kamal expressed deep shock at the loss of lives due to flood and conveyed sympathy to those who got affected with the natural disaster, said a party press release.

He condemned the government's "indifference" and "negligence" towards the flood victims.

Meanwhile, a Gono Forum relief team, led by its presidium member AMSA Amin, went to Rangpur Wednesday to distribute relief materials among the flood-affected people.

Talking to UNB, Gono Forum Joint General Secretary Maj (retd) Amin Ahmed Afsari said their meeting also decided to hold a seminar in August marking the 44th death anniversary of Bangabandhu and Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
