She handed over a cheque for the amount to President of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) Mollah Jalal at a function at her official residence Ganobhaban in the city.

PM’s media adviser Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury, State Minister for Information Tarana Halim, Information Secretary Abdul Malek, Director General of the Press Institute of Bangladesh (PIB) and Managing Director of the Journalist Welfare Trust Md Shah Alamgir, former BFUJ president Abul Kalam Azad, Principal Information Officer (PIO) Kamrun Nahar, BFUJ secretary general Saban Mahmud, president of Dhaka Union of Journalists Abu Jafor Surja and general secretary Sohel Haider Chowdhury were present.
