Staff Correspondent: BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir urged the government to declare state of emergency to prevent dengue.

He said, “Dengue has been spread everywhere of the country. We heard from the experts that it will continue. So, it needs declaration of state of emergency and fights the situation unitedly. Something needs to be done like a wartime situation as time is very short.

The BNP stalwart told this to reporters after he visited several dengue infected people admitted to Labaid Hospital in the capital’s Dhanmondi on Friday afternoon.

He visited BNP Chairperson’s advisory council member Farhad Donar and several other patients in the hospital.
