Jatiya Party demanded rehabilitation of all the victims of the fire incident on Friday at the Mirpur slum.

Visiting the burnt slum at Chalantika in Mirpur on Tuesday, JP chairman GM Quader said that the government must rehabilitate the people who lost everything in the tragic fire incident.

After distributing relief materials among the victims, Quader demanded that the government extend its social safety net coverage to the victims.

‘We can support with our limited resources but the government has huge fund to help people like the fire victims,’ Quader said.

JP secretary general Mashiur Rahman Ranga demanded monitoring of the area so that vested groups could not occupy the slum built on khaas land.
