Gazipur City Mayor Mohammad Jahangir Alam distributed 15-day foods to 60,000 unemployed poor families of the City Corporation. Ward-based food supplies distribution started from Konabari on Thursday. At the time, Minister of Liberation War AKM Mozammel Haque was present.

Under the program, 2,100 tonnes of food is being distributed in 57 wards through 65 committees. These foods include rice, pulses, oil, onions, salt and potatoes. 

Mayor Jahangir Alam said all the people are now in the home quarantine under the direction of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Many of them are very poor. We will provide 15-day food essentials to 60 thousand families. Periodically, we will create a list considering voter ID and food items will be sent to door to door to their respective address. This number may increase further. Besides, If anyone inform us that they have no food in their house we will provide food to those.

Referring to the need for having an all-party committee to distribute relief, Minister of Liberation War AKM Mozammel Haque said, "We will deliver every ward-based relief." People will benefit more if the relief is not distributed randomly through the ward committee.
