BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that 8 per cent of the Tk 27,000 crore incentive given by the government to Korona is fake.

He said, “We have made a specific proposal that the marginal people should be given a one-time grant of Rs 15,000 for three months, during which time the lockdown will continue.” They (government) have not heard anything.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam said that this government has deliberately disrupted the health system of the country during the terrible global epidemic of coronavirus. Their indifference, their incompetence, their failure, their corruption has endangered the country and the lives of the people of the country today, endangered their livelihood. “Hospitals have no beds, no oxygen, no ICU beds and no medicine,” he said. People’s lives are in danger today due to its horror. Corona will not get treatment, wrong treatment will be.
The BNP secretary general complained that the BNP was not participating in the by-election of Sylhet-3 constituency. However, the police are raiding the houses and houses of BNP leaders and activists, harassing and arresting them.
Mirza Fakhrul said the bureaucrats have now taken over everything. There is no politics, politicians have been forced to move away. They have no relationship with the people. They have survived in power with the connivance of bureaucrats and some corrupt people.
The BNP secretary general said, “One thing is that if this government cannot be removed, then the main goal of our war of independence in 1971 will be completely destroyed.” This government must be removed, democracy must be restored, the country’s leader Khaleda Zia must be released. He said the BNP has more responsibility, so the BNP has to lead it. We can never be disappointed in him. You can’t go ahead with frustration and failure. We have to work together in spite of many obstacles, many advantages and disadvantages.
