Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) donated Tk 25 lakh and 10,000 blankets, 5,000 pieces of sweater to the relief fund of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her secretariat office on Thursday afternoon, as many poor people suffered from chilling cold.
A BGMEA delegation led by its President Abdus Salam Murshedy called on the Prime Minister and handed over to her the warm clothes and cheque for the money.
Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Abul Kalam Azad, BGMEA Vice-President (Finance) Md. Siddiqur Rahman and Directors Badal Roy, Md. Atiqul Islam and Mohammed Nasir were present.
The BGMEA leaders highly lauded Prime Minister’s address to the nation, saying that her speech will “inspire the nation again to work unitedly to turn the country into a modern development one”.
They also expressed gratitude to Hasina for her government’s effective initiatives to protect the garment sector from instability and maintain congenial safe environment both for laborers and owners of mills and factories during the last one year.
Prime Minister Hasina thanked BGMEA as they stand by the poor people of the country.
“Such donation will inspire affluent people and groups to come forward to help poor people,” she said.
