Information Minister and Joint General Secretary of the Awami League Dr Hasan Mahmud said, "The Awami League is by the side of the people in times of disaster. This is a culture of our party, a tradition, because politics is for the service of the country and the people. We were with the people when we were not in power. "

After visiting the flood-hit areas of Sylhet-Sunamganj-Netrokona with the Prime Minister on Tuesday, he exchanged views with journalists at the Secretariat in the afternoon. "The prime minister is the mother of humanity," Hassan said. 

“Speaking of relief, there was no rain today. The flood situation has improved a lot compared to before. In some places 4-5 feet of water has gone down. The Prime Minister has directed dredging of the main rivers of Sylhet as the carrying capacity of the river has been reduced due to siltation,” he said.

Dr Hassan said, "As you know, after the flood situation in Sylhet on the 16th, the Prime Minister took immediate action that morning, mobilized the civil administration, the army and other security forces and at the same time ordered our party leaders and workers to jump." Today we went to the spot and saw the locals in their expression that the Awami League leaders and workers are working shoulder to shoulder with the administration officials. '

When asked about BNP's various comments on the floods, he said, "When the Prime Minister asked the mayor of Sylhet what he got from the party, he could not say anything. Because nothing has been done by his party BNP, their leaders cannot be found. Sitting in Dhaka, they give long, long speeches, they can't be found there. They do not know that all the ministers and MPs of Sylhet region have gone to their areas. The planning minister is in Dhaka only because of coronation.”

Rizvi's rhetoric on 'floods because of the Prime Minister' seems to suggest that the Prime Minister is also responsible for the highest rainfall in 122 years in Cherrapunji in Assam and the highest rainfall in 100 years in the Sylhet region. That's what his words stand for. Because of the whim of blaming the government for everything, they don't really understand what to say. 

Even in the midst of the flood disaster, some of the so-called journalists are involved in counter-journalism, the Broadcasting Minister said, At the time of Corona, at the time of laying the foundation and construction work of the Padma Bridge, it has happened, it is still happening. The flood-hit people have expressed anger over this. We urge the mainstream media to remain as vocal as ever against such propaganda. "
