BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has called upon her party leaders and activists to come forward immediately in aid of flood victims at different parts of the country without waiting for the ‘corrupt government’s pity’.
“Flood-hit people can’t be left at the mercy of a corrupt governmenrt. I ask everyone, especially BNP leaders & activists, to urgently help them,” she said in a twitter message, reports UNB.
Besides, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said their chairperson sent out an emergency message from London asking party leaders and activists to visit the flood-hit areas immediately with relief materials.
He said the BNP chief gave the directive as the government is not taking any effective steps to relieve the sufferings of flood-hit people instead of giving only lip services.
At least 33 people were killed and several lakh remained marooned as a severe flood hit the country due to the onrush of water from the upstream and incessant rain.
