"Garments and other industry’s workers and owners can coordinate on the decision of taking the due leaves with government holidays for Eid ul Azha," she said.The State Minister said this while attending a meeting with the Tripartite Consultative Committee (TCC) on RMG on Tuesday.
“Field officers of the Ministry have been directed to motivate workers aged 35-years and above to get the Covid-jab under mass inoculation campaign," she said.
Soon workers aged below 35 years will be vaccinated too, she added.
