Eid holidays won't start on April 9

Update : 01 Apr 2024, 12:41

There will be no holiday on April 9 before Eid-ul-Fitr.  The Cabinet Committee on Law and Order yesterday recommended a holiday on April 9 before Eid, but the Cabinet rejected it today. 

This morning the cabinet meeting was held at the Prime Minister's Office. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina presided over the meeting. 

Responsible sources present at the meeting confirmed the information. 

The committee yesterday recommended adding a day to the start of the Eid-ul-Fitr vacation to make travel to hometowns smoother for holidaymakers.

This year's Eid-ul-Fitr is expected to fall on April 11. The government earlier declared April 10-12 as Eid vacation.
