BNP senior leader Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury on Tuesday urged the government to make its stance on Rohingya issue clear before the nation.
Quoting the leader UNB said, "Extreme nationalism has been instigated by creating Rohingya crisis which may destabilise the region by putting its peace and security under a serious threat. It won't bring anything good for anyone."
Speaking at a discussion, he further said, "The government's stance on Rohingya problem is still not clear. I call upon the government to make its position clear and tell the nation how you want to deal with the issue."
Bangladesh Youth Forum arranged the programme titled 'Bangladesh's position on Rohingya Crisis' at the Jatiya Press Club.
Khasru, a BNP standing committee member, said their party wants to cooperate with the government in facing the Rohingya crisis as it is a national issue, not any party's one, reports UNB.
He said their party had successfully tackled Rohingya problem in 1978 and 1992 forcing Myanmar to take back many Rohingyas.
The BNP leader criticised the government for depriving hapless Rohingya of huge humanitarian assistance by obstructing their party's relief team from distributing relief among them.
