State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said 95 percent of people in the country are following the government’s decision. Do not evaluate Bangladesh by seeing one thousand, two thousand or five thousand people at the ferry ghats.
He said these while speaking as the chief guest at an exchange meeting organized by the upazila administration on coronavirus situation at Biral in Dinajpur on Saturday.
The State Minister said those involved in the Prime Minister’s relief programs should be vigilant so that no name on the list should be left out.
At present the connectivity of the country is very strong, in this case, there is no opportunity to cheat, he said. “There are many unreasonable debates about relief efforts. Many do not have Nagad or bKash account, so they give the number of the store or someone safe. They were not removed from the list.”
He says those who drive van or cobbler does not need bKash number unless one of the children is studying at university.
Highlighting the strong leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in tackling the COVID-19, he said the whole world is unstable today. “US President Donald Trump is also talking restlessly. The Prime Minister of Italy cried looking up at the sky. In Britain, Boris Johnson infected himself. There Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is constantly encouraging us.”
Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said the Prime Minister had distributed cash among mosques, Qawmi Madrasas, and working people. her activities will be memorable.
