Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said BNP is indiscriminately blaming the government over the coronavirus (Covid-19) situation without raising awareness among the people in maintaining the health guidelines.
He made the comment at a press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence here.“I want to know from those making criticisms only for the sake of criticism – if the government has mismanagement, how the number of daily infection declined to below 600 from 8,000 and deaths from 112 to below 40,” he said.
Quader urged all to play a responsible role in maintaining heath guidelines as there is no way to think that the Covid-19 would vanish very quickly.
Mentioning that BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir had earlier demanded imposing a strict lockdown, the minister said when the government enforced ‘lockdown’ (restrictions on movement) or general holiday considering the overall situation, BNP opposed it strategically.
He said BNP also spread misleading information about vaccine to discourage the people in receiving vaccine but their evil attempts failed.
