A total of 50 flood-hit families were given cash money at the function as
part of their rehabilitation programme.

maintaining ecological balance through stopping any harmful practices related
to environment.”

Officials of local administration and representatives of organization
concerned, among others, were present at the function with Royanchhori
upazila chairman Chohai Mong Marmar in the chair.
