Covid out of control: BNP

BNP on Sunday alleged the coronavirus situation in the country has gone 'out of control of the government' due to its failure to contain the virus transmission effectively.

“Our standing committee meeting thinks that the corona situation is out of the control of the government. The way the government is trying to contain the corona transmission is nothing but a farce with people,” he said.

Fakhrul came up with the remarks while speaking at a press conference on BNP standing committee’s virtual meeting held on Saturday at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office.

He slammed the government for inflicting suffering on the needy and poor people by enforcing a lockdown in an unplanned way.

“The government's lockdown game to contain corona’s delta variant is a tragic joke with people. They initially announced lockdown, then severe lockdown and then relaxed lockdown while strict lockdown again a day after the Eid. It seems that all government's decisions are coming from Pabna’s Hemayetpur,” Fakhrul quipped.

The BNP leader said people in the informal sector, hawkers, small traders, rickshaw- and van-pullers, transport workers and day-labourers are being affected badly due to the government’s unplanned measures.
