President Abdul Hamid on Sunday urged all to continue their efforts at reaching relief materials to the country’s flood-affected people.
In his Eid greetings at Bangabhaban the president said the government is carrying out relief works in the flood-hit north and northeastern parts of the country.
He urged the country’s affluent people to join hands with the government in boosting the relief work.
He made the call after saying his Eid-ul-Azha prayers in the Hallway of Bangabhaban.
President Hamid said the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war have put the global economy under pressure amid increasing inflation.
"To deal with this situation, the government is implementing various programmes including providing package incentives to keep the wheel of the economy moving," he said.
He once again urged the people to be imbibed with the spirit of sacrifice and sharing as they celebrate the Eid-ul-Azha, the Muslim festival of sacrifices.
Hamid termed the inauguration of the Padma Bridge before Eid as a blessing for the three crore people of 21 south and southwestern districts of the country.
