The government has taken no initiative except giving lip service, according to Ruhul Kabir Rizvi
BNP on Saturday alleged that people are going through a tough time for the lack of food, fresh water, and medicines in the country's flood-hit areas due to the government’s “inaction”.
“The shortage of pure drinking water, essential medicines, and food has intensified the sufferings of the people in the flood-affected areas. Even, the crisis of cattle feed and baby food has reached an extreme level there,” said BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
Speaking at a virtual press conference from BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he further said: “The government has so far taken no initiative except giving lip service.”
Rizvi called upon the leaders and activists of BNP and its associate bodies and the rich to stand by the flood victims to ease their sufferings.
“People are on the verge of death in the flood-hit areas as there is no step for providing them with relief. The government is indifferent and inactive to assuage the sufferings of the flood victims,” he alleged.
The BNP leader said coronavirus infected people are also passing a tough time for the lack of treatment due to the government’s mismanagement and failure to deal with the situation.
“The government is least bothered about the sufferings of the flood victims and it has no sense of responsibility for the Covid-19 patients,” he observed.
