Bangladesh government was not agree to give sanctuary to Rohingyas at the initial stage.But I had requested to the government to provide shelter them who fled from Rakhaine state to save their life.Still Government’s efforts are not enough to send the Rohingyas back to their own country who took shelter in Bangladesh. The government has failed diplomatically in this regard. She added
