A representative team of Awami League (AL) on Wednesday (29 May) went to the country’s southern region to visit cyclone Remal-affected areas.

The team led by AL joint general secretary agriculturist AFM Bahauddin Nasim will visit Pirojpur, Barguna, Patuakhali, Khulna, Sathkhira, and other affected areas of the region, according to a release here.

The other members of the team include AL organizing secretary Advocate Afzal Hossain, international affairs secretary Shammi Ahmed, central committee members Golam Rabbani Chinu and Anisur Rahman, Swechasebak League president Gazi Mezbaul Hossain Sacchu, and acting general secretary Khairul Hasan Jewel, among others.

Nasim said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is regularly enquiring about the affected people and the areas as well. It is expected that the Premier will visit the affected areas tomorrow, he added.

He said Awami League leaders and activists are standing beside the affected people as per the directive of the Prime Minister. The government is also working for the welfare of the common people, he said.

He said many people, including farmers, were affected by the cyclone Remal. "We, on behalf of the Awami League, are enquiring about the affected people. The Awami League is a party of mass people,” said Nasim.
