Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed on Sunday inaugurated a hospital in Chandpur’s Matlab North upazila.

The hospital, “Abdul Wadud Sarkar 10-bed Mother and Child Welfare Centre”, is located in the Tarki area of the upazila, and is named after Gen Aziz Ahmed’s father. 

Notably, this is the first time Gen Aziz Ahmed has visited his ancestral village after taking office as the chief of army staff, according to a press release.

Following the inauguration ceremony, the army chief, while answering questions from reporters, said the Bangladesh Army is prepared to fulfil any duty entrusted to it by the government.

“We are responsible to the country; we are obliged to fulfil any responsibility as required by the country,” General Aziz said.

Highlighting the success of his force, Aziz said the people of Bangladesh are aware of the fact that the Bangladesh Army was very active in its efforts to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.

He continued: “The government sought the army’s help when our honourable prime minister declared war on the coronavirus pandemic. We then worked for the country risking our lives. 

“Around 1,100-1,200 army members visited 62 of the 64 districts every day to work for the people, raise awareness and distribute masks and other necessary equipment.”

“We provided healthcare by building temporary hospitals amid the pandemic. Army members treated pregnant women when they couldn’t go to hospitals,” the army chief added. 

Several top officials of the government and the army, including the lawmaker of Chandpur 2 constituency Md Nurul Amin, were present during the hospital’s inauguration.
