BNP slams move to ‘stop’ drive at hospitals

Criticizing the Health Ministry’s move to ‘stop’ drives at hospitals by law enforcers, BNP on Thursday said it has exposed that the government wants to protect those involved in corruption in the health sector, reports UNB.

Speaking at a virtual press conference from Kurigram, he feared that the health sector will face even more dire consequences in the days to come and there will be no service for people. 

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said: “The Health Services Division issued a circular (to refrain law enforcers from raiding hospitals) which has proved that the government wants to protect corruption as most of those involved in corruption and fraudulent acts in the health sector, and giving forged certificates, belonging to the ruling party. This circular has been issued to protect them."

The way corona infections are gradually spreading to remote areas from Dhaka, sick people will be in deep trouble. Such an indication is there in the Health Services Division’s move.

On Wednesday, Health Services Division of the Health Ministry sent a letter to the Home Ministry asking it to keep law enforcement agencies away from raiding the government and private hospitals.
