Bashundhara Group, the largest business conglomerate of the country, distributed blankets among 600 people living in different slums of Satkhira district on Sunday.

The blankets were distributed at Shaheed Abdur Razzak Park in the district around 12:00 pm .

Elderly Mahar Ali (60) came from Nagarghata village of Patkelghata police station dearing winter fog to receive blanket. He said, “Our area remains inundated for four months a year. There is land but no crops. So, the people of the area have no income. There is no one to see the suffering of the poor. May Allah bless the people who are giving us winter clothes (blankets).”

Usha Rani of Rishipara in Satkhira said, "The blanket will be of great help to us amid pincing cold. I wish Bashundhara Group to be bigger. Let them be able to stand by all helpless people of the country.”

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Satkhira Kazi Arifur Rahman, eminent academician and advisor of Kaler Kantho Shubha Sangho Satkhira branch Prof Abdul Hamid, former president of Satkhira Press Club and convener of Journalist Unity Subhash Chowdhury, were present at the programme.
