No evil force can stop development: Menon

RANGPUR- Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon, MP, has said no evil force can stop the ongoing development in the process of building a middle income Bangladesh.

"The vested quarters have been conducting militant activities to hinder advancement of the country, but they will never succeed," Menon said at a public rally organised by Gangachara upazila Workers' Party at Gangachara upazila town here on Sunday as the chief guest.

Convener of the rally preparation committee and local leader of Workers' Party Mahmudul Alam presided over the rally participated by tens of hundreds of the leaders and activists of the party from all over Gangachara upazila.

Menon said that 85 per cent populations are farmers and labourers and the present government under visionary leadership of Prime Minsiter Sheikh Hasina has been working for changing their fate to ultimately build a developed Bangladesh.

Regarding sharing water of the Teesta, Menon said water of the river has huge importance on the farm activities, livelihoods, environment, ecology, bio-diversity and agro-economy of five districts in the northern region.

"We are still remaining deprived of the Teesta river water," he said and called upon West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee to cooperate the central government of India in completing the Teesta water-sharing treaty.

Politburo Member of Workers' Party Mahmudul Hassan Manik, central committee Members Nazrul Islam Hokkani and Habibar Rahman, General Secretary of Bangladesh Krishi Farm Sramik Federation Abdul Mazid, its Rangpur district unit General Secretary Ashok Sarker and President of Jatiya Adibashi Parisahd Rabindra Nath Soren, addressed among others.
