Shining desk || shiningbd
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said no one in Bangladesh will remain without shelter as her government is working to ensure access to affordable housing options for all.
"Everyone will get an address," she said while distributing newly-constructed flats among 300 families, who had been living in slums of the capital.
She handed over allocation papers of the new flats in 14-storey three buildings on a rental basis. The Ministry of Housing and Public Works implemented the project at Mirpur 11.
Held at Bangabandhu International Conference Center, the Prime Minister joined the programme virtually from her official residence Ganobahban.
"This is the Bangladesh of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Everyone in Bangladesh will get a better life …that’s our aim," she said.
Hasina said she thinks that materialising the dream of the Father of the Nation is synonymous with the development of Bangladesh.
"Our only responsibility is to implement the dream of the Father of the Nation, I think that’s the development of Bangladesh," she said.
Hasina said the way Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman thought about the welfare of the country and its people, no one else could do this that way.
About the people living in slum-like areas, the prime minister said the government will arrange proper accommodation for them.
"This is the Bangladesh of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, for that every people of Bangladesh will get developed life, that is our aim," she said.
