M Humayun Kabir: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday directed the deputy commissioners (DCs) to go tough on illegal drugs, tender mongers, extortion, muscle power and terrorism.
She came up with the directions while inaugurating the three-day annual DC Conference at Prime Minister’s Office here, reports BSS.
The prime minister said the deputy commissioners have to take tough actions for peace in industrial areas and make easy goods transportation and export and import.
“You will do this without any hesitation and without seeing party affiliation,” she said adding that “if anybody creates any obstacle, I request you as the head of the government and daughter of the Father of the Nation, please contact me in this connection.” The premier urged the field level officials particularly the district bosses to come up with their thoughts and suggestion to prepare the development plan for 2041. Deputy Commissioners’ (DCs) Conference is an annual meeting of the heads of districts with policy makers of the government aimed at discussing policy matters and development strategies to gear up the field level administration.
Ministers, PM’s advisers, state ministers, deputy ministers, senior secretaries and secretaries concerned attended the function. She asked the DCs to submit their proposals and suggestions for finalising the 2021-2041 development plan. The ongoing progress of the country should be continued to achieve the cherished goal of independence, and make Bangladesh a poverty and hunger free nation, she said.
