BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan on Sunday said around 6.4 million people have become poor during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Bangladesh is the biggest factory for producing new millionaires. Every year, new millionaires are being created here,” he said citing data of an international journal, reports UNB.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader said only five per cent of people in Bangladesh are controlling the 95 per cent wealth of the state.
Nazrul called upon people to get united to stop plundering and reduce inequality by establishing a pro-people government.
Bangladesh Shikkhok Somonnoy Committee arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club on the auto-promotion of students without examination and its probable impact on education.
