Staff Correspondent

The Jatiya Sangsad authorities on Thursday decided to set up a ‘Jatiya Sangsad Jadughar’ (Parliament Museum) on the parliament premises with a view to highlight democratic heritage of Bangladesh.
A Parliament Museum was set up in India in 2006, which is visited by a large number of people, especially students, imparts knowledge in an interesting and interactive manner on the evolution of political institutions, constitutional history and parliamentary development there.
Chaired by deputy speaker Fazle Rabbi Mian, a consultative meeting, held at the Jatiya Sangsad secretariat, has finalised the theme, location of the museum and other technical issues, meeting sources said.
Fazle Rabbi told the meeting that such a museum was set up in some countries including neighbouring India.
The meeting also decided to form a committee to implement the establishment of the museum.
Earlier on Wednesday, speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury told New Age that she had visited the Parliament Museum in Lokshava in February and was impressed by it a lot.
The Public Works Department is implementing a project in which 8.5 feet high iron fences would be set up on three sides of the complex — the South Plaza and the lawns on the east and the west — replacing the existing four feet high barrier.
Architect Louis I Kahn designed the National Assembly Complex on 200 acres of land at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar and it was inaugurated in 1982.
