Bahalul Kabir Khan, poultry trader, presided over the programme and addressed among others by Nurul Islam, Shahidul Islam, Zakir Alam, and Abul Kalam Azad.
Rapidly flourished poultry and pisciculture business in the country not only filling the demand of supplying protein for the citizen, but also playing a vital role in self employment of educated and marginal people, the speakers of the programme told.
