AL will tackle coronavirus as it always stands by people: Nasim

Awami League (AL) presidium member and central 14-party alliance spokesman Mohammed Nasim said as the Awami League always stands by the country’s people, the ruling party will stay beside them in addressing coronavirus crisis.

“Awami League is the only party, which stood by the country’s people during any disaster (emergency period) in the past. And it stands by them and will remain beside them in the future. Awami League along with the people will tackle any crisis, including coronavirus,” he said.

Nasim came up with the comments after distributing clothes, food items and coronavirus prevention materials among orphans at Azimpur Orphanage in the capital.

Bangladesh Awami League relief and welfare sub-committee arranged the coronavirus prevention programme, marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Nasim said the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina-led government had stood by people in every crisis in the past, it will win against the coronavirus.

“We got an independent state due to the bravery of Bangabandhu and now Bangladesh can tackle any disaster or crisis for the courage of his daughter – Sheikh Hasina,” he added.

Terming the BNP’s anti-government statements over coronavirus as a political mistake, the 14-party alliance spokesman said: “I want to tell that the party, which wants to do politics over coronavirus crisis, always practices the politics of error”.

As the Bangalees win against every crisis, he said, they can be able to bring the coronavirus situation under control by fighting the deadly virus.

About the birthday of Bangabandhu, Nasim said the world’s all countries show respect to the heroes of the history but the BNP chief celebrates her birthday on the martyrdom day of Bangladesh’s founding leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which is a matter of shame.

Chaired by AL advisory committee member AKM Rahmat Ullah, the function was addressed, among others, AL organising secretary advocate Afzal Hossain, its health affairs secretary Dr Rokeya Sultana and relief and welfare secretary Sujit Nandi Roy. Haji Selim, MP, was present on the occasion.
