LGRD and cooperatives minister Mohammad Tajul Islam on Saturday said that if the country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman remained alive, Bangladesh would become a developed country by within 10 years of the independence.
‘We want to build Bangladesh a ‘golden Bangla’ as dreamt by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,’ he said while addressing a view-exchange meeting with Laksam Upazila public representatives as the chief guest.
The minister said Shaikh Mujib struggled a lot to establish rights of the people.
‘Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has given me the responsibility of an important ministry. I shall try to discharge my duty with utmost honesty and devotion,’ he added.
The present government, the LGRD minister, said has been working to transform all villages into towns in line with the announcement of the prime minister Sheikh Hasina.
‘We will reach city facilities to villages. Our goal is to build a developed Bangladesh under the leadership of prime minister Sheikh Hasina,’ Tajul Islam said.
During the meeting, additional police super of Cumilla South district M Abdullah Al Mamun, Laksam Upazila chairman Yunus Bhuiyan, Laksam Upazila Nirbahi Officer AKM Saiful Alam, its officials and leaders of Awami League and associate bodies were present.
