Coronavirus; PM is the beacon of our hope: Obaidul

Awami League General Secretary, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the beacon of our hope, she is by everyone's side. 

To strengthen her hand, he called upon the Awami League leaders and workers to stay by the side of the people through coordination while maintaining social distance, he added.

Obaidul Quader said this while inaugurating an online volunteer training workshop on COVID-19 by the sub-committee on science and technology of Bangladesh Awami League from his official residence on Friday.

Obaidul Quader said that the countries of the developed world are struggling to cope with COVID-19 situation despite the solid foundation of the economy and the capacity of the health sector. If infected, treatment, as well as morale, should be maintained. 

The bridge minister said it is important to provide proper services to those affected by coronavirus infection, as well as to raise awareness about COVID-19 among the people from different walks of life by training on family and workplace safety and risk management.

On the other hand, he said that charging extra fare on public transport and picking up more than half of the passengers is a breach of promise.

The convener of the sub-committee on science and technology, Professor Hossain Mansur presided over the ceremony. Leaders of the sub-committee including Abdus Sabur were present among others.
