Gobindaganj UNO sets up grocery shop for man with disability

The Gobindaganj upazila nirbahi officer (UNO) has set a great example by giving a grocery shop to a man with disability at Khukhsia village of the upazila.

Office sources said Md Awal Mia worked as a muezzin of a local mosque, but would not earn enough to smoothly support his family.

His plight was highlighted on social media at one stage. The post came to the notice of UNO Ramkrishna Barmon, who then took the initiative of setting up a grocery shop for Awal.

On Sunday, the UNO handed over the shop to Awal and also gave him 35 commodities to begin selling.

Afterwards, Awal Mia expressed his gratitude to UNO Ramkrishna.

Locals highly lauded the initiative.

Talking to the correspondent, UNO Ramkrishna Barmon said he did it as part of his social responsibility.
