State-owned entities must do businesses: Mustafa Jabbar

GOPALGANJ, Jan 06, 2018 (BSS) - Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Mustafa Jabbar today said state-owned entities must do businesses overcoming the limitations.

Mustafa Jabbar placed floral wreath at the mazar of the Father of the Nation and offered Fateha.
