CHATTOGRAM: Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary and Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said the leaders of BNP hold press briefings from isolation in their home to blame the government on different issues, reports BSS.

“They (BNP leaders) did not come forward to help the people. Leaders and workers of AL and members of some voluntary organizations are beside the people all over the country,” he said, speaking at a function to handover medical equipment to the Upazila Health Complex at Rangunia Upazila Auditorium in the afternoon.

In the function, the minister also distributed cheques for government grants to the families of those killed in the wild elephant attack.

He said BNP leaders are just staying at home and criticizing the government without helping the poor people.

“On the other hand, neither the AL nor the government is sitting idle, rather they continue helping the people… I am too working in the field. When the people of the country are affected, there is no reason to sit idle in the house,” he added.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Masudur Rahman presided over the function while Upazila Vice Chairman Shafiqul Islam, Assistant Superintendent of Police Abul Kalam Azad, Divisional Forest Officer Abu Naser Mohammad Yasin Newaz, Upazila Health Officer Dr Rehanul Islam, Upazila AL General Secretary Engineer Shamsul Alam Talukder, Chairmen Idris Azgar, Mujibul Haque Hiru and Upazila Awami League Office Secretary Abu Taher among others addressed the function as special guests.
