The Cabinet has decided that government officials will not be allowed to leave their stations during the coming Eid-ul-Azha holidays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam made the announcement at a briefing after the weekly cabinet meeting at the Secretariat on Monday afternoon.

“A three-day holiday is coming for the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha and this time the holiday won’t be extended. Nobody can be allowed to leave their work station during this vacation,” said the Cabinet secretary.

Cabinet Division sources said the order would be applicable to all government employees.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chaired the cabinet meeting virtually from Ganabhaban, with only seven ministers and some top bureaucrats participating. The ministers joined the meeting virtually from the Secretariat.

The Cabinet also announced that March 7 was approved as National Historic Day at the briefing.

“There was an observation from the court to mark historic 7 March as a national day and to install  murals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in all upazilas. The Cabinet approved the day’s national status and instructed the Cultural Ministry to inform the court about the government’s initiatives regarding Bangabandhu’s murals to be taken countrywide,” said the Cabinet secretary. 

Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque, Health Minister Zahid Maleque, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen, State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid Babu, Prime Minister’s Office Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus were also present at the meeting.
