Awami League presidium member and health and family welfare minister Mohammad Nasim on Monday said the attackers on motorcade of BNP secretary general Miza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir are enemy of democracy.
‘Those who are involved in the attack cannot be friend of any political party ... AL never supported the heinous activities like this and the criminals would be bought to book soon,’ he said.
‘Earlier, miscreants have attacked the prime minister for several times, they also attacked me at Sirajganj leaving a person dead but AL does not support the politics of wrath,’ he said.
He was speaking as chief guest at an unveiling programme of ‘Dissemination of the National Strategy for Adolescent Health 2017-2030’ at Hotel Sonargaon in the capital.
Director general of Family Planning Directorate Kazi Mostafa Sarwar presided over the programme while secretary of the ministry Sirajul Islam, DG of health services professor Abul Kalam Azad, Netherland ambassador Leoni Margaretha Cuelenaere, UNICEF representative in Bangladesh Edouard Beigbeder and UNFPA Yuri Kato spoke.
‘To build a future of the country it is very essential to ensure proper health of adolescents who are one fifth of total population,’ said the minister.
Nasim urged the parents to ensure the proper nutrition to their children and keep them away from drugs.
Health minister also inaugurated two MRI machines and one CT scan machine at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in the capital at noon.
