Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader greeted the countrymen on the occasion of Bangla New Year-1427, calling upon them to maintain social distancing to tackle coronavirus.

“This time, maintaining social distancing should be our pledge for Bangla Noboborsho,” he stated in a video message issued on the occasion of Bangla Noboborsho, reports UNB

“We continue our fight against coronavirus under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and we will win the war,” he added.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said Pohela Boishakh is the traditional festival of Bangalees and the people from all walks of life welcome the Bangla New Year on this day.

Terming Pohela Boishakh a universal cultural festival of Bangalees, he said the non-communal spirit of Bangalees is depicted in this festival.

“This year, we are celebrating Pohela Boishakh at such a time when the deadly coronavirus has gripped the people of the nation,” Quader said.

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has announced the “stay at home program” to contain the spread of the lethal virus and “we will defeat the virus by staying at home.”

The Awami League general secretary also said, coronavirus is a highly infectious virus and it has no antidote.

“That is why social distancing is the most effective way of preventing infection from the deadly virus,” he added.
