BNP on Wednesday alleged that the weeklong lockdown, enforced by the government, is only causing public sufferings instead of yielding any positive outcome to contain Covid transmission due to mismanagement, reports UNB.

"The reality is that neither lockdown nor the restrictions are being implemented at the field level due to mismanagement of the government," said BNP acting office secretary Syed Emran Saleh Prince.

Speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he also said people remain at a high risk of coronavirus infection because of the government's contradictory moves. "Everything is in a mess everywhere, putting people in limitless troubles."

The BNP leader also alleged that the government has enforced the lockdown without any prior preparation.

He said long traffic jams on roads and highways are the proof that the lockdown has been ineffective. "People are waiting in long queues for transports at different places in the city. Basically, everything is going on as before."

The BNP leader said the government's policy makers took such a decision of enforcing a lockdown sitting in air-conditioned rooms without proper planning as they do not need to think about salary, utility bills and money for managing food. "But people have to endure sufferings as a result of this unplanned and unprepared move."
