Agriculture Minister and Awami League (AL) Presidium Member Dr Md Abdur Razzaque on Saturday said there will be no shortage of essential commodities in the country during the upcoming holy month of Ramadan.

“The government is taking all-out preparations. There will be no shortage of daily essentials during Ramadan,” he said while speaking at a reunion programme at Paiska High School in Dhanbari upazila of Tangail district.

Razzaque said the countrymen will bring Sheikh Hasina back to power in the next election to continue the trend of ongoing development.

Noting that BNP has no ground to stand on, and they failed to create political instability, he said, “The current government will not collapse, rather continue in office. In the next election, the people will elect AL again with a huge margin.

“So, Sheikh Hasina will lead the country in the coming days as well.”

Urging students not to earn wealth illegally, and to not lead luxurious lives, Razzaque said, “We have to think about how much money and luxury we need. We should take others’ needs and living standards into consideration.”

Former Students’ Forum President of the school Golam Samdani, former students of the school Square Hospital Director Dr Sanwar Hossain, businessman Fazlul Karim Bachchu and Engineer Azizur Rahman, Dhanbari Upazila Parishad Chairman Harunar Rashid Hira and Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Aslam Hossain spoke at the function, among others.

About 20,000 former and incumbent students of the 75-year-old school joined the function.

Later, the minister distributed stipends and bicycles among 350 ethnic minority group students under the Development Assistance for Special Area Programme at Madhupur Upazila in Tangail. He also inaugurated a three-day book fair there, marking International Mother Language Day.
