Entire country witnesses balanced development simultaneously: Land Minister

PABNA- Land Minister Shamsur Rahman Sherif today said the entire country is witnessing balanced development simultaneously under the dynamic leadership of Bangabandhu's daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"She (Hasina) never splits the country's regions on the basis of political identity rather makes parallel opportunities for all citizens of the country to enjoy the equal rights," he told the inaugural function of the newly built Mosque and 1200 meter wide Bilkedar to Babulchara road at Ishwardi Upazila here.

The minister said "Many governors and prime ministers led the country in the past ... but none was successful to achieve what Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina achieved (in development sector)".

He also said Bangladesh has achieved a fabulous success in eradicating poverty under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

The construction work of the 1200 meter wide Bilkedar to Babulchara road was completed at the cost of Taka 64,74,000 under the Important Rural Infrastructure Development Project on Priority Basis of Local Government and Engineering Department (LGED).

Ishwardi Upazila LGED Executive Engineer Rejaul Karim and Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Shakil Mahmud were present at the function, among others.
