"This decision to donate two-day salaries was taken through an executive meeting of Jahangirnagar University Teachers' Association (JUTA) today," said JUTA president Professor A A Mamun, according to JU correspondent."Staying homes, a large number of people across the country have become unemployed as their workplaces are closed due to shutdown. We want to stand beside those marginalised people. So, we have decided to donate two-day salaries for them," he added.
