Health and Family Welfare Minister and Awami League Presidium Member Mohammed Nasim on Friday said national unity over Rohingya issue already exists in the country so there is no need to forge a fresh national unity.
The minister and also the coordinator of the 14-party grand alliance made the comment replying to the call of BNP to create national unity in the Rohingya crisis.
He was addressing at the 29th national council of Bangladesh Society of Ultrasonography (BSU) at Hotel Sonargaon.
“National Unity has already been forged over the Rohingya crisis as leaders and workers of all political parties are going Cox’s Bazar to provide relief goods and praised the government steps,” Nasim told.
Nasim said people from home and aboard stood beside Rohingya people responding to the call of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the humanitarian crisis.
“Entire world welcomed the steps of government over the Rohingya issue,” he said.
The minister urged the United Nations and superpowers of the world to put pressure on Myanmar to bring back the Rohingya refugees.
“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has provided shelter to Rohingya people in the humanitarian ground. But Bangladesh cannot give them shelter for long time.
They must be brought back to their own country,” he said.
BSU President Dr Mizanul Hasan chaired the seminar while Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council Chairman Mohammad Shahidullah and BSU General Secretary Dr Mahbubul Haque, among others, addressed it.
