Declare hillslide-hit areas as ‘disaster zones’: BNP

BNP on Monday demanded the government immediately declare the hillslide-hit areas of the country as 'disaster zones', and stand by the victims with necessary support.

The party also demanded that state mourning be announced over the deaths of huge number of people in landslides, in Rangamati, Khagrachari, Chittagong and other areas of the country.

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir came up with the demand at an iftar party arranged by Jatiyatabadi Samajik Sangskritik Sangstha (Jasas) at Emmanuel's Convention Centre, Gulshan.

"While we're taking iftar here, our many brothers and sisters in the country's southern Chittagong region are going through immense sufferings as landslides damaged their homes and valuables. Around 170 people have so far been killed in the hillsides, but unfortunately the government is yet to announce any state mourning and the natural calamity-affected areas as disaster zones," he said.

The BNP leader further said, "We demand the government announce the hillslides-hit areas as disaster ones and a state mourning for the loss of so many lives."unb
