Hindu Mohajote for 3-day holiday

bangladesh_map12Leaders of Bangladesh Jatiya Hindu Mohajote yesterday demanded a three-day government holiday on the occasion of Durga Puja, the largest religious festival of the Hindu community.
They came up with the demand at a press conference organised at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) in the capital.
The Hindu leaders said they get only one day as holiday for celebrating the occasion, though Durga Puja is their main festival when they get together with their family and relatives.
Mohajote President Manoj Kumar Mandal said, “We get a one-day leave on Dashami, the last day of the festival, though the whole Durga Puja is a five-day festival.”
“So, the government should grant us a three-day vacation to celebrate the biggest religious festival properly,” he added.
The jote also demanded 60 reserved seats in the parliament for the Hindu community.
