Bangladesh Nationalist Party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Wednesday said that the government decided to open shops and shopping malls amid spread of coronavirus as it did not care about the life of people.

The BNP leader made the comment while distributing relief materials at the management of Rajshshi district Swechchhasebak Dal at Kazirhat in Rajshahi city in the morning.

The health minister said that the government allowed opening of shopping malls with maintaining social distancing, but highly infectious coronavirus could be transmitted from one to another and may cause deaths, he cautioned.

He said that the government took the decision when the numbers of deaths and infection were increasing every day and there was possibility that the situation may take a serious turn.

He said that BNP leaders and activists stood by the countrymen and had been distributing relief materials bought with their own money.

The BNP leader said that the relief materials bought with people’s money were now found in the houses, underground and in heap of hay of union parishad chairmen, members and Awami League leaders.

‘These should not happen. Such things are happening as the government is not an elected one and they have no accountability to the people,’ he said.
