Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday called up on people to help the government to properly and speedily implement development projects in their respective areas. The Prime Minister came up with the call while inaugurating and laying the foundation stones of some 51 projects of various ministries through a videoconferencing from her official residence Ganobhaban.
Reiterating her government’s firm commitment to carry out development activities across the country, Hasina said her government wants to see that there is no poverty in Bangladesh and no one remains here homeless, starves and dies without treatment. Referring to the inauguration of train services on the second line over Tongi-Bhairab Bazar section, the Prime Minister said her government has a plan to introduce express train service between Dhaka and the port city Chittagong so that people could comfortably travel on this important route faster. She hoped that the development of train services will get a momentum with the implementation of countrywide various projects. Renewing her commitment to build rail network throughout the country, Hasina said rail communication would be stretched to Barisal and then Kuakata, Payra Sea Port and Mongla Port. Hasina said people could now see, feel and enjoy the fruits of development, as the country sees development whenever Awami League assumes office.
