On behalf of the Awami League, Quader greeted the countrymen on the occasion of Bangla New Year and the holy month of Ramadan
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday urged all to build a fort of awareness against Covid-19 at the household level.
“The deadly coronavirus must be prevented and defeated with united efforts. The fort of awareness should be built against this invisible enemy at every house,” he said.
Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, made the remarks while speaking at a regular press briefing on contemporary issues at his official residence in Dhaka.
On behalf of the Awami League, he greeted the countrymen on the occasion of Bangla New Year and the holy month of Ramadan.
The Awami League general secretary said Pohela Boishakh, the largest festival of Bangalis, has arrived again in an adverse environment and a cruel time in coronavirus-hit Bangladesh.
He said the beauty and taste of Pohela Boishakh were lost along with the well-known melody of the flute.
Noting that the enthusiasm of Pohela Boishakh has been lost due to panic induced by coronavirus, Quader said despite that, Bangalis continue their struggle to survive with new hopes.
He also hoped that Bangalees would win against the coronavirus and communal forces under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
