Removing communalism from the country is a challenge now, Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Tuesday.

Around 9am, the AL general secretary along with senior party leaders went to Banani graveyard on the occasion of the Jail Killing Day.

At first, he paid tribute to Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmed and Captain M Mansur Ali by placing wreaths on their graves on behalf of the prime minister. Later, he placed wreaths on their graves on behalf of the party.
