Chief of army staff general S M Shafiuddin Ahmed handed over a cheque for Taka 100 million to the prime minister Sheikh Hasina for the flood-affected people in the country's northeastern parts including Sylhet, reports BSS.

On behalf of the Bangladesh Army, the cheque was handed over to the premier at her official Ganabhaban residence on Wednesday, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) release said here today.

According to the release, along with the active role at the field-level of the affected areas, all the members of Bangladesh Army have been directly involved in a grand initiative by depositing their one day's salary to the prime minister's relief and welfare fund.
