Over 66 lakh people left Dhaka on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, the second biggest religious festival of Muslims.

Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar revealed it through a Facebook post on Sunday (July 10).

According to the Posts and Telecommunications Minister, a total of 65,78,866 registered SIM-card users left Dhaka for various parts of the country, out of which 34,88,000 SIM-card holders are from Grameenphone, 15,45,000 subscribers from Robi, 14,17,000 users from Banglalink and 1,68,000 users from Teletalk.
