Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday (August-8) urged people to cooperate with the government instead of criticizing it unnecessarily to tackle the dengue prevalence.
Minister Quader said this while speaking at a programme organised by AL Relief and Social Welfare sub-committee at Dhanmondi 32 in the city, marking the birthday of Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib.
Referring to the Prime Minister’s directives to intensify the cleanliness drive, Obaidul Quader, also the AL general secretary, said, “Now the only work is to check the life-threatening dengue.”
Urging all to keep their own homes and workplaces clean, He said that the two city corporations of Dhaka and other organisations concerned are working in a coordinated manner to eliminate dengue.
Regarding BNP’s claim of the government’s failure in controlling dengue, Obaidul Quader said, “BNP itself has failed to play its due role as a responsible opposition party.”
General secretary Quader suggested BNP to recognize its own failure first before talking about the government’s failure.
