Quader urges youth to come forward to defeat evil forces

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday called upon the young generation of the country to come forward to resist all evil forces.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, made the call while opening a colourful cycle rally, marking the 75th founding anniversary of the AL and Cycling For Health campaign, organised by Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Md Atiqul Islam on Manik Mia Avenue, reports UNB.

The rally, in participation with around 1,500 cyclists, started from the avenue and ended at Dhanmondi 32 after parading several roads.

Later, they paid tribute at the mausoleum of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman there.

At the inaugural event, Mayor Atiqul said there is no alternative to cycling to stay sound for a healthy body.

He hoped for making separate lanes for cycling under the DNCC area and continuing the rally in the future.

Minister of Textiles and Jute and Awami League Presidium Member Jahangir Kabir Nanak, lawmaker from Dhaka-8 and Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Office Secretary Biplob Barua, Deputy Office Secretary Sayem Khan, President of the Metropolitan Awami League Bazlur Rahman, and DNCC councillors, among others, were present at the opening ceremony.
