Terming corruption as one of the major obstacles to socio-economic development, President Abdul Hamid has urged everyone to come forward to make the ongoing drives against militancy, drugs, extortion, gambling and corruption a success.

President Hamid made the statement at a reception hosted for the members of the Hindu community for the occasion of Durga Puja at Bangabhaban on Tuesday, reports UNB.

He said: "Everyone should take an oath to eliminate injustice and corruption from society by adhering to the principle of ‘Won’t do wrong myself, nor would allow others.’ Then the country will move forward and a peaceful society can be established."

He said that Durga Puja is not only a religious festival but also a social festival.

 "All people, regardless of religion and caste, celebrate the festival, which creates a bridge of harmony among people. It has become a universal festival that is attended by everyone" he added.

The president also urged everyone to play a vital role from their respective positions to prevent evil activities from the society for building a peaceful society.

Mentioning the existing communal harmony as a tradition of Bangalees, President Hamid said the tradition must continue through the combined efforts of everyone for our overall development.

Abdul Hamid and his wife Rashida Khanom also exchanged greetings with the guests.

Hindu religious personalities, leaders of various puja committees, and the Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Riva Ganguly Das, among others, joined the reception.
