The transport for Hajj pilgrims will be closed like last year as Saudi Arabia did not allow to perform Hajj this year due to the coronavirus situation.

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal stated this while addressing the proposed budget for the 2021-22 fiscal year at the Jatiya Sangsad in the capital on Thursday.

He said maximum use of information technology is being ensured for the smooth completion of Hajj performance in the coming years. The service provider agencies are not sufficient for space. Therefore, the work of upward expansion in the Hajj Camp building and renovation of the internal infrastructure of the Hajj Camp is progressing at a fast pace.

“Under the Imam and Muazzin Welfare Trust, interest-free loans have been provided to 1,000 imams and assistance to 4,000 distressed imams in the current fiscal year,” said the Finance Minister.
