This year, a total of 1,27,198 pilgrims - 7,198 under government management and 1,20,000 under private management - will perform Hajj from Bangladesh, said the minister while speaking at a press briefing over the Hajj management situation.

The government has taken necessary steps so that the pilgrims can go to Saudi Arabia smoothly, he added. Besides, action will be taken against Hajj agencies if found taking money less that the government-set package, said the Minister.
