BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said, the number of coronavirus infected patients and deaths have been increasing in the country as the government has no pre-preparation to contain the disease.
He said these while distributing food items among poor and destitute people at Mohammadpur area in the capital on Friday morning.
Rizvi said, lockdown is going on throughout the country. So there is scarcity of food among the least income people. People are rushing for food. A famine like situation is prevailing in the country. In this bad time BNP leaders and activists are distributing relief items with help of their pocket money, while the members and chairmen of the ruling party are stealing the relief rice.
He said, the whole world including Bangladesh is in disarray. Coronavirus did not affect Bangladesh at the beginning when other countries were affected. The government had enough time to take preparation but it could not. Countries like Vietnam, Bhutan took appropriate steps, so that the number of infections and deaths is less there.
Rizvi also said, the least income people are not getting food. They are suffering a lot and fasting in this dangerous situation.
