Freedom fighters to get honorarium before Eid

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque Sunday said each freedom fighter will get Tk 52,500 as honorarium and festival allowances before the Eid-ul-Azha.

"Each freedom fighter will get a total of Tk 52,500 - including three- month honorarium and bonus allowance of the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha," the minister told the delegation of freedom fighters called on him at his office.

He said that with the spirit of 1971 Liberation War, the incumbent government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working relentlessly to ensure the welfare of the freedom fighters.

The government enhanced honorarium of freedom fighters three times and it introduced festival allowances for them like all other service holders, an official release quoted the minister. 

Former Vice-Presidents of Muktijouddha Command Council Ismat Kadir Gama, Prof Doctor MA Salam Khan and Mohammad Salah Uddin, freedom fighters - Mohammad Alauddin Miah, Delwar Hossain, Dr Fazley Ali and Mia Mujibur Rahman, among others, were present during the meeting.
