“Earlier during fishing bans, the government would have 40kg rice distributed to each fisherman. From now, the government will provide 44kg.”

Tofail concluded by saying: “Bangladesh is definitely moving forward, and has seen much development under the leadership of our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”

District Awami League General Secretary Abdul Momin Tolu, Tofail’s daughter Dr Taslima Ahmed, District Awami League Organizing Secretary Hossain Biplob, among others were present at the program.
