Lack of vaccines making Covid situation worse: GM Quader

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Tuesday alleged that the country is facing a devastating Covid situation as the government has failed to ensure vaccines for the majority of people in due time.

Speaking at a views-exchange meeting with the leaders of Jatiya Party Dhaka north city unit at Party chairman’s Banani office, he also said it is not possible to tackle a dangerous pandemic like Coronavirus only by wearing masks and washing hands with soap.  

“The government has completely failed in vaccine diplomacy. We still didn’t get the guarantee for having vaccines for our people when almost all the countries in the world have normalised the situation by vaccinating their citizens,” the Jatiya Party chief said.

Stating that the Covid situation has already taken a serious turn, he said experts are warning that it will deteriorate further in the days to come due to the slow pace in the vaccination programme.

GM Quader, also the deputy opposition leader in parliament, said lockdown will never be successful in Bangladesh as most people in the country have no food at their homes and lack sufficient money in their pockets.

“So, if food is not provided by the government, hungry people will go out of their homes.

We urged the government from the very beginning to give the poor people food support before enforcing the lockdown. But the government didn’t do that for lack of its goodwill,” he observed.

GM Quader called upon people to rally around under the flag of Jatiya Party as both Awami League and BNP could not ensure their welfare. “People have got fed up with the governing of the two parties since the 90s.”

Claiming that Jatiya Party has a brighter future, he urged party leaders and activists to work hard to strengthen its organisational capacity. 

Speaking at the programme, Jatiya Party Secretary General Ziauddin Ahmed Bablu said the present government has failed to tackle the Corona situation. “Corona has spread to most villages of the country as the government has no control over the virus transmission.”

He said people’s lives and livelihoods have been affected badly by the ineffective and unplanned lockdown enforced by the government. “The government is making fun with people's lives and livelihoods. The government has to take the responsibility for the lives and livelihoods of every citizen of the country.”
