The rule of law has been established in the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and it is the same for everyone, State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury has said.

“We are not sparing anyone. Everyone who commits a crime is being brought to book, irrespective of party affiliation,” he said while speaking as the chief guest at the signing ceremony of the Annual Performance Agreement (APA) at the secretariat on Wednesday afternoon.

Khalid, who is also the organizing secretary of Awami League, said: “Those who are involved in illegal activities are being brought to justice.”

Talking about his ministry, he said the Ministry of Shipping had functioned normally even during this [Covid-19] crisis.

"Last year, our Annual Development Program (ADP) implementation rate was 99.9%, whereas this year, despite the pandemic, it is 85%.”

During the event, he also thanked the officials of his ministry for their courage and hard work. 

“Many of us were infected by the deadly virus and many died while implementing the ADP,” he added. 

The minister also discouraged people from going to their villages on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, unless there are emergencies.

“As I have said before, unless there is an urgent need, we should be able to celebrate Eid-ul-Azha by staying where we are. We can celebrate Eid virtually with our families who are in the villages,” he added.

Khalid further said: “The Shipping Ministry and other agencies are trying to make this year’s Eid journey as comfortable and safe as possible.” 

Among others, top officials of the Shipping Ministry were present at the event.
