The Dhaka University (DU) authorities on Monday decided to organise ‘Mangal Shobhajatra’ on a limited scale on the occasion of Bangla New Year-1428 celebrations, considering the pandemic situation.

The decision was taken at a virtual meeting, chaired by Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman.

The meeting decided to hold a symbolic Mangal Shobhajatra with only 100 people on the premises of Faculty of Fine Arts following health guidelines. The DU authorities requested everyone to avoid mass gatherings on the day rather enjoy the live programme on the television channels.
