An ordinary farmer couple of Kishoreganj has gifted a cow to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as sacrificial animal for the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.
The cow is a cross Brahma breed, which would have approximately 800kg of meat.
The couple has reared the cow for the last three years only to give it to the daughter of their beloved Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Bulbul Ahmed and his wife Ishrat Jahan who are resident of Charkauna village at Pakundia Upazila in Kishoreganj district have showed that poverty can never be a hindrance to love.
On Friday evening, Prime Minister’s special Assistant Agriculturist Moshiur Rahman Humayun informed her (the premier) about the matter.
Hearing the message, the Prime Minister became overwhelmed and agreed to accept the cow as a gift.
The Premier became happy for this rare love and thanked the farmer couple.
Hasan Jahid Tushar said the Prime Minister's wish is that this cow will remain at the house of Bulbul Ahmed and will be sacrificed there in Eid-Ul-Azha. She also requested him (Bulbul) to distribute the sacrificial beef among the local poor and helpless people.
Bulbul said, in 2020, he bought this cow from Netrakona district at a cost of Taka 2.50 lakh to gift it to the Prime Minister. After buying the cow, he also swore to donate Taka 5,000 to the famous Pagla Mosque of Kishoreganj district so that his cow would become healthy.
Bulbul Ahmed said that he and his wife Ishrat Jahan bought this cow for the Prime Minister through their small amount of savings along with taking loan from Amar Bari Amar Khamar (My House, My Farm) Project, launched by the Awami League government. They took care of the cow passionately for the last three years.
Bulbul Ahmed expressed his gratitude to the Prime Minister for agreeing to accept his cow as a gift.
