PM to flag off nationwide population census June 14

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will address the nation on June 14 on the eve of the start of countrywide population and household census, Planning Minister MA Mannan told parliament on Monday.

The Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) will conduct population and household census simultaneously for seven days from June 15 to 21 to collect socio-economic data of all the people of the country.

The minister sought the help of all members of parliament so that the people can take active participation in the population and household census.

The senior minister came up with the statement in the House while speaking under section 300 of the rules of procedure of parliament.

He said that he personally sent an demi official (DO) letter to the Speaker, Deputy Speaker, Chief Whip, whips, Opposition Chief Whip, ministers, state ministers, deputy ministers and opposition leader and MPs seeking their full support to encourage people to give accurate information apart from their active participation.

“I am reiterating my appeal again to the parliament,” he added.
