Dhaka: BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday said their party is happy as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has visited Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar.
“We are happy that good sense has prevailed upon the Prime Minister even after it has been late,” he said.
The spokesperson for the party was addressing a programme at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh marking the 10th jail release day of the party chief Khaleda Zia and her elder son Tarique Rahman.
He also strongly criticised her government for not adopting a motion in parliament condemning the ongoing atrocities against ethnic community in Myanmar.
The government was silent when Indonesian foreign minister, Turkish foreign minister and its first lady visited Bangladesh over the Rohingya issue and the secretary general of the United Nations wrote to its security council to stop the mass killing in Myanmar, he said.
“You (PM) went there (Cox’s Bazar) when a UN team is coming to Bangladesh to visit the Rohingya refugee camps,” the BNP leader said.
Fakhrul also blasted the government for not allowing the Rohingya people to enter Bangladesh at the initial stage when Myanmar government started cleansing the ethnic community.
The parliament last night adopted a resolution urging the United Nations and the world community to exert strong diplomatic pressures on Myanmar to take back Rohingyas, ensuring their safe accommodation and citizenship rights.
