DHAKA: The Bangladesh opposition leader and the Chairperson of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), Khaleda Zia, has accused the government of ‘insufficient efforts’ in extending assistance to Rohingya refugees, The Daily Star reported.
She urged the international community to continue diplomatic efforts and pressure Myanmar to take back the refugees, who have fled to Bangladesh to escape persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
The former prime minister made these remarks while distributing relief and support materials at a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar on Monday.
Referring to the attack on her motorcade in Feni, while she was en route to visit the camp, Zia said, “The government won’t get away with this”.
The BNP and its archrival Awami League are blaming each other for the attack.
