In a statement, the DUJ leaders said the extra cost of the holy month of Ramadan and the coronavirus protection had made it extremely difficult for journalists to make a living. The livelihood of these young media workers has also become miserable due to long arrears of salaries and allowances in several organizations and illegal dismissals. All in all, the DUJ Executive Council expressed its gratitude to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for standing by the side of humanity in such a difficult situation.
In addition, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting said that the Corona disaster is the guardian of the journalists in any crisis. DUJ also expressed its gratitude to Hasan Mahmud.
