JP hails government on easing shutdown

Jatiya Party (JP) on Thursday appreciated the government for restricted or conditional reopening of offices and transport services from May 31 easing a nationwide total shutdown.

In a statement, JP Chairman and Deputy Leader of the Opposition in Parliament GM Quader expressed satisfaction over the decision and thanked the government.

“We have been urging the government to make the nationwide shutdown from the beginning (of the outbreak of COVID-19). We always say that along with the lives, livelihood also should be considered,” he said in the statement.

Decision should be taken considering the plights of destitute and daily laborers, Quader said, adding that today’s circular of the government was a demand of time to keep the wheel of the country’s economy moving (ahead).

The JP chairman expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for taking the right decision.
