AL MP hangs playcard in JS

Ruling Awami League lawmaker SM Shahjada on Wednesday sprang a surprise in parliament as he hung around his neck a placard reading: "No more relief, just an embankment."
He took to this unique and rare route of protest in parliament to press his demand for an embankment in his Patuakhali-3 constituency. The AL MP was speaking on the proposed budget for the fiscal 2021-22.
Shahjada said he faced public wrath as he went to
 his constituency recently with relief after the recent cyclone.
"The locals do not want relief, they want a permanent solution to the problem of embankments in their coastal areas," he said.
At the end of his speech, he put the placard around his neck with eyes of many members rolling.
He said MPs of different coastal areas have to deal with the same situation.
On June 1 lawmaker of Khulna-6, Akhteruzzman faced public outrage as he went to Dashalia, badly hit by recent cyclone Yaas.
Local villagers were angry about breaches in the fragile embankments.
In the recent cyclone Yaas, around 38 villages of Koyra went under water after the flood protection dam was breached in at least 21 points.
