Dhaka, October 19: Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has directed the party leaders and workers to take to the field to prevent the attacks and looting on the minorities in Comilla.

The Awami League will hold a reconciliation rally and peace procession in front of the Bangabandhu Avenue central office in the capital on Tuesday (October 19) at 11:00 am on the instructions of the party president. Besides, the party will hold the same program all over the country in the afternoon.

Under the program, Awami League and allied organizations will organize 'harmony rallies and peace processions' in all metros, districts and upazilas of the country. The party's central leaders also visited various areas affected by the communal attacks.
