“Stand by the people . . . Give topmost priority to the public interest and their welfare while discharging your duties,” he said, addressing the sixth reunion of the Signal Corps of Bangladesh Army at Jashore cantonment here this noon.

Noting that the state and the government go by for the welfare of people, the President asked to the army to stand by the people during their happiness and grief simultaneously overseeing the national security aspect.

Abdul Hamid, also the supreme commander of the armed forces, advised the army personnel to properly abide by the ‘Integrity Strategy’ and wait upon their respective duties with honesty, loyalty and sincerity.
