Quader, the general secretary of Awami League, also said holidaymakers' journey during this Eid-ul-Fitr will not be totally hassle-free but it will be at a tolerable limit.

"The upcoming Eid journey may not be totally hassle-free but it will remain at a tolerable limit," Quader said adding, "In order to ease the holidaymakers' journey, we have instructed the concerned authorities to repair all roads by June 8.
