BNP making falsehood over lockdown: Hanif


KUSHTIA, April 17, 2021 (BSS)- Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif today said BNP has resorted to falsehood centering the lockdown.

“Those who are making falsehood centering the lockdown are enemies of the country and the nation,” he told reporters at his residence here.

Earlier, Hanif along with local leaders and workers of AL paid tributes at the Mujibnagar Memorial in Meherpur on the occasion of the historic Mujibnagar Day.

About BNP’s allegation that the lockdown has been enforced to shift the Hefajat movement to different direction, the AL joint general secretary said the government has enforced the lockdown on the basis of the recommendations of experts, not on a sole decision.

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is facing the coronavirus situation with her knowledge and prudence.

Hanif said Bangladesh’s efforts and strategies in facing the coronavirus situation have been praised by the world community including the United Nations (UN).

“But BNP is making falsehood over the lockdown,” he said.

Replying to another question, he said now it has been proven that BNP-Jamaat incited the mayhem carried out in Brahmanbaria to destroy the land office and different places in a pre-planned way.

District AL President Sadar Uddin Khan, Vice-President Haji Rabiul Islam, General Secretary Ajgar Ali and Joint General Secretary Sheikh Hasan Mehedi were present, among others, on the occasion.
