BNP has decided to provide humanitarian assistance with those Rohingyas taking shelter in Bangladesh amid persecution by Myanmar security forces.
The decision was taken at a meeting of BNP’s national relief and rehabilitation committee held at its Nayapaltan central office, said a press release on Saturday.
The meeting urged the government to give shelter to hapless Rohingyas and take effective steps to resolve the crisis.
It also called upon local BNP leaders and activists to continue their humanitarian assistance to fleeing Rohingyas.
The meeting formed a team, led by BNP vice chairman AZM Zahid, to visit Rohingya refugees and give them necessary humanitarian aids, including healthcare.
The team will go to Cox’s Bazar on emergency basis, the release added.
Speaking at the meeting, Abdullah Al Noman, the chief coordinator of the committee, said their chairperson Khaleda Zia asked leaders and activists of BNP at all levels to give humanitarian assistance to Rohingyas who have no shelter, food and clothes.
He said BNP’s relief and rehabilitation committee will urgently help the Rohingyas.
Besides, Noman said their party will continue its post-flood rehabilitation programmes in the disaster-affected areas.
