BNP senior leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain on Saturday alleged that the Awami League is trying to politicize the Rohingya issue.
Mosharraf said, “The government is saying it has signed a deal with Myanmar to repatriate the Rohingyas. But they are also taking a project to rehabilitate Rohingyas at Noakhali’s Bhasan Char. The country’s people can understand it easily that you are deceiving them as well as the Rohingyas.”
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further said, “We think the government is not opting for a permanent solution to the problem only to gain their political interests.”
Ganotantrik Sangskritik Jote organised the programme on Rohingya issue at the Jatiya Press Club.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) approved the Tk 2,312 crore Ashrayan-3 project in Noakhali’s Bhashanchar for rehabilitating the Rohingya refugees.
“Rohingyas must be sent back to their motherland with dignity and citizenship rights to resolve the problem permanently,” Mosharraf further added.
