Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said there is no scope to build a building or set up an industry anywhere just because one has money.

Stressing the importance of planned development in urban and rural areas, the prime minister said: "We do not want to let anyone do that, we are setting up 100 economic zones. The BSCIC industrial estates established by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be expanded. 

"We will carry on industrialisation in a planned way. Schools, colleges, and everything will be set up in a planned way," she added.

The prime minister said this on Monday, while inaugurating new buildings for ministries, senior secretaries, secretaries, and grade 1 employees of the government at Eskaton Garden area of Dhaka.

Requesting the architects to make the designs of buildings keeping in mind the climate, and weather of the country, she said the government wants to formulate a master plan for every mega city, district, and upazila, and is working accordingly.

She mentioned that there will be croplands, playgrounds, and recreational places, apart from accommodation facilities. "We have to build each village with modern facilities. I think we have to do everything in a planned way."

Government facilities

The prime minister said the government is providing all sorts of facilities to public servants for the sake of the county's development, reports UNB.

"We are arranging every sort of facilities for them just for one reason: development of the country. We have arranged loans for them to purchase flats, we have arranged a system so that they could buy vehicles, we have arranged various facilities for them from all aspects," she added.

The prime minister put emphasis on keeping, and preserving wetlands and ponds.

"Ponds cannot be filled. Once there were many ponds in Dhaka city, but those have been filled, this cannot be done anymore," she said.

Hasina also urged everyone to maintain austerity in using power, water, and keep respective areas clean as this is the duty of all citizens.
