"The President, his family members and officials concerned will attend the main Eid prayers of Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the greatest religious festivals of the Muslims, at 8:30am," his press secretary Md Joynal Abedin told BSS.

On his arrival at the Eidgah at 8.20am, the President will be received by Chief Justice, religious affairs minister, DSCC mayor and others concerned.

Noted personalities, including the chief justice, cabinet members, Supreme Court judges, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSSC) mayor, lawmakers, senior political leaders, and top civil and military officials will say their prayers at the National Eidgah Maidan.

"But if it is not possible to hold the Eid prayers at the National Eidgah due to inclement weather, the President will say his Eid prayers at the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque at 9 am," reads the programme schedule on the day.
