JP hails govt on easing shutdown
DHAKA, May 28, 2020 (BSS) – Jatiya Party (JP) today appreciated the
government for restricted or conditional reopening of offices and
transport services from May 31 easing a nationwide total shutdown.
In a statement, JP Chairman and Deputy Leader of the Opposition in
Parliament GM Quader expressed satisfaction over the decision and
thanked the government.
“We have been urging the government to make the nationwide shutdown
from the beginning (of the outbreak of COVID-19). We always say that
along with the lives, livelihood also should be considered,” he said
in the statement.
Decision should be taken considering the plights of destitute and
daily laborers, Quader said, adding that today’s circular of the
government was a demand of time to keep the wheel of the country’s
economy moving (ahead).
The JP chairman expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina
for taking the right decision.
