Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Sunday alleged that the government had politicised the mass vaccination programme by deceiving the common people.
‘Our standing committee thinks the government has indulged in mass deception in the name of mass vaccination without collecting enough vaccine doses. The mass vaccination campaign has become a drive to spread mass infection due to extreme mismanagement and politicisation,’ said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Fakhrul came up with the remarks while unveiling the decisions of a virtual meeting of the BNP standing committee at a press conference at the party chairperson’s Gulshan office. The meeting was held on Saturday evening.
He said their party policymakers urged the government to take effective measures to ensure general vaccination coming out of the process of ‘politicisation’. ‘We strongly condemn and protest the involvement of ruling party workers in the mass vaccination programme.’
The BNP leader said the government has started deceiving people in the name of a mass vaccination drive with inadequate jabs. ‘They (govt) have received 1.60 vaccine doses. But 26 crore jabs are needed to inoculate 70 per cent of the population.’
