The party Central Working Committee Member and Sylhet City chief Fakhrul Islam, Dhaka City South Working Committee Member Abdus Salam, Mubarak Hossain and other leaders, among others, were present at the program.

The Jamaat leaders also urged the affluent sections of the society to extend their helping hands to the flood victims.
