Urging BNP to stop the politics of brawl, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said today that the government wants to build the country with the help of all at the same time as offering Eid prayers at the National Baitul Mukarram Mosque.
"We want to develop the country together with the cooperation of all of us. So let's work together to save the world from the Coronavirus outbreak that had destroyed life and livelihoods. So that is our dream of this sacred Eid-ul-Azha, "he said.
While talking to newsmen after offering Eid prayers this morning, Hasan said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina took a variety of steps shortly after the deadly COVID-19 broke out.
However, he said, "The country sees a far lower death rate among coronavirus infected people compared to other countries due to good, time-consuming and needed government intervention under the supervision of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina."
The Minister said Bangladesh is one of the countries where the death rate is smaller, although the death rate is lower than that of the neighboring countries-India and Pakistan. And that was only possible with her (Sheikh Hasina) constructive moves and far-sighted leadership, said Hasan, the joint general secretary of the Awami League.
Greeting the countrymen at Holy Eid-ul-Azha, one of the biggest religious festivals of Muslims, the Minister said that the people of the country are observing Holy Eid and offering their prayers at a period when the entire world is facing a coronavirus catastrophe.
“My prayer to the Great Allah is people of the country and the globe free from the lethal Coronavirus,” he said.
The Minister said Bangabandhu 's worthy daughter, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, is working tirelessly around the clock to liberate the country from the virus. The nation has achieved a new height over the last 11 and a half years under the strong leadership of the Prime Minister, he said.
Hasan said, “The country will reach the desired destination we dream. And this is our expectation on this day.
Turning to the month of mourning, he said the month of mourning begins today. “And on this day, I also hope that the politics of killing will be stopped in the nation forever,” the minister said.
