With a call to develop the standard of living of the senior citizens in the country, The International Day for Older
Persons’ was observed today in a befitting manner. Bangladesh Probin Nagorik Kollan Society and Daffodil International University (DIU) organised a rally and a discussion on DIU campus at Sobhanban here, marking the day.

While addressing the programme as the chief guest, Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh, MP said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken various initiatives for the welfare of the older persons. “The government has provided adult allowances which increase the social dignity of the elderly people.

their working capacity…We have to respect them more and utilize them in a proper way as they can help us with their vast experiences,” Taposh said.
