‘Indoor programs could be held marking the Victory Day by following health guidelines’

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Tuesday said there will be no events in open space on the occasion of the Victory Day this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Indoor programs could be held marking the Victory Day by following health guidelines,” he said at an inter-ministerial virtual meeting on the Victory Day security measures.

Liberation War Affairs Ministry has undertaken nation celebration programs on the occasion of the Victory Day 2020.

“On the great victory day, the national flag in correct size and colour should be hoisted in all governments, semi-governments, autonomous and private buildings as per the instructions of the Cabinet Division,” the home minister said.

He said measures will be taken to start 31 gun salutes in districts and upazilas along with the capital as soon as the sun rises, adding: “Illumination could be arranged in different establishments.”

However, the law enforcement agencies will take necessary security measures for smooth celebration of the day across the country and avoid any untoward situation, Kamal said.
