Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader urged the country’s people not to pay heed to any rumour over coronavirus vaccines and alleged that BNP frequently makes statements amid the COVID-19 pandemic but it does not stand by the people.
“BNP does not do anything for the people. But if the government wants to do anything good, the party creates confusions among them by spreading propaganda and rumours,” he told a food distribution programme through videoconferencing from his official residence here.
Awami Swechchhasebak League arranged the programme on Bangabandhu Avenue this morning to distribute food items among the poor and destitute people.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the BNP's continuous falsifying and propaganda have spread at a high rate, keeping pace with the COVID-19 infections.
Coming down heavily on the BNP for its ill-politics, he said since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, no political party, except the AL leaders and activists, has stood by the helpless people.
“The BNP often makes big statements, but they do not stand by the people (during the pandemic),” the AL general secretary said, adding, “Now the politics is to stand by the helpless people.”
