The days of buying votes with Tk 100 are over: Health Minister
Health Minister Zahid Malek said to BNP, ‘People are now educated. They know where voting leads to the development of the country. Forget those days, the days of buying people’s votes with 100 rupees are over. BNP can never come to power through arson, shooting, sabotage.
He said, ‘BNP is talking big to come to power. BNP’s goal is power. And their only demand is to remove Sheikh Hasina, remove the Awami League government. But BNP never once says, if we come to power, we will develop this, we will do this and that for the people. BNP’s only attempt is to remove Awami League from power.
He said these things during the chief guest’s speech at the check distribution ceremony of Jatiya Samajkalyan Parishad among more than 150 helpless-poor people of the municipality at Manikganj Municipal Auditorium on Saturday afternoon. The health minister said, ‘Actually through BNPs, fire came to power through terrorism and sabotage. They are using the same technique again to come to power in future. Because, BNP never wants to win people’s hearts and come to power.
He said, ‘We have controlled Corona. Currently, there is an outbreak of dengue in the whole country including Dhaka. We are trying to control dengue infection. Dengue can be tackled only if the people of the country are aware. Many more epidemics like Corona, Dengue may come, so everyone should be aware and move. Dengue infected two lakh people across the country and 1 thousand 158 people died. The municipality has a lot of work to do, to continue mosquito control activities throughout the year. By doing this, mosquitoes will decrease and dengue will also decrease.’
