Government and non-government offices resumed operations on Monday after three-day holiday marking Eid-ul-Fitr.

The first working day was spent amid exchange of Eid greetings at government offices, including the Secretariat.

A Secretariat official said the presence of officers and employees was scarce after Eid. This time, many officers and employees received additional leaves as two days of the Eid holiday overlapped with the weekend.

On the first working day after Eid, Finance Minister AMA Muhith, Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu, Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammed Nasim, LGRD and Cooperatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, Social Welfare Minister Rashed Khan Menon, Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan, Food Minister Qamrul Islam, State Minister for Health Zahid Maleque and State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Meher Afroz Chumki exchanged greetings with officers and employees.

The visitor’s room at the Secretariat remained almost vacant on Monday.

The scenario was identical at the Bangladesh Bank, insurance offices, Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FBCCI) and Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) offices.

City streets also remained empty as most of Eid holidaymakers have yet to return to Dhaka.
