BNP appreciates PM’s Rohingya visit
BNP on Tuesday appreciated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for visiting Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar but strongly criticised her government for not adopting a motion in parliament condemning the ongoing genocide against the ethnic community by Myanmar authorities.
“The Prime Minister to Ukhia of Cox’s Bazar today (Tuesday) with a big convoy went. We’ve come to know she’s distributed some relief materials there. We’re happy that good sense prevailed upon her after so many days,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion programme arranged by Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking the 10th jail release day of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman.
The BNP leader said the government was silent when Indonesian Foreign Minister, Turkish Foreign Minister and First lady visited Bangladesh over Rohingya issue, and the UN the Secretary General wrote a letter to the Security Council to stop mass killing in Myanmar immediately. “You went there Ukhia today (Tuesday) when a UN team is coming to Bangladesh to visit Rohingyas.”
