A two-day concert for helping the flood-hit people of northeastern districts of the country will begin at Dhaka University's (DU) Teacher Student Center (TSC) premises on Monday.
The concert has been arranged by teachers and students of the university under an initiative named 'All Cultural and Social Organizations of Dhaka University are with the flood-hit people'.
A press conference was held around 1:30pm on Sunday at Dhaka University Journalists’ Association (DUJA) to invite people to come forward to help the flood-hit people by attending the concert.
Member Secretary of the initiative Professor Robayet Ferdaus said that the word ‘relief’ is not appropriate as the country belongs to all the citizens of this land.
“People provide taxes for the betterment of the country and it's the legal right of the people to get the help," he said.
Robayet added that DU is a public university which runs with the funding based on taxes paid by people. So it’s DU’s responsibility to give a hand to the flood-hit people.
He hoped that everyone from the DU family will take part in this initiative.
Renowned bands like Warfaze, Ark, Ashes, Viking, Sonar Bangla Circus and Sohojia will perform.
"Most of the country’s popular bands have agreed to join us," said Quddus.
The entry fee of the concert has been fixed at Tk 300 and the entire amount will go to the flood-hit people.
The concert has been scheduled to be held from 2:00 pm to 10:00pm.
