PM prays last respect to Badal

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday paid last respect to valiant freedom fighter and parliamentarian Moin Uddin Khan Badal.

She placed a floral wreath on his coffin at 10:08am after his namaz-e-janaza on the premise of the Jatiya Sangsad. The janaza was held inside the tunnel of the Jatiya Sangsad instead of its south plaza due to rain.

Badal, the executive president of a faction of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal, passed away at a hospital in Bangalore on Thursday at the age of 67.

He was elected an MP from Chattogram-8 constituency with ruling Awami League’s election symbol ‘boat’ in the 2018 general election. Source: UNB
