Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Tuesday facing the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and resisting extreme communal forces are two challenges before the government.
He said this after inaugurating the 50-kilometer extended road from Cox’s Bazar Link Road to Unchiprang under Teknaf upazila in Cox’s Bazar joining a function virtually from his official residence in Dhaka.
Quader said it is very essential to carry out the government efforts in a well-coordinated way and make the party’s unity stronger to face the two challenges.
He gave directives to the concerned officials to strictly enforce the restrictions against Covid-19 to contain the spread of the pandemic as the rate of infection and deaths is in the rising trend, he added.
The AL general secretary also urged the party leaders and workers to remain united to help the government face the two challenges, reports BSS.
On the other hand, he also said that Awami League leaders and workers also extend cooperation to the people in any crisis and disaster.
