Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday stressed the importance of good governance and asked the government officials to devote themselves to serving people to make this society a better place.

“I hope you’ll devote yourselves to serving people remaining faithful to the constitutional responsibilities,” she said.

As per the 7th article of the Constitution, Hasina mentioned, people are the owners of the country while the 21(2) article of the constitution stated that government employees are bound to serve people round the clock.

Hasina said it is the desire of all that there will be a service-oriented administration in the country which will innovate new services to serve people.

“Stay involved in establishing good governance through proper enforcement of laws, stay beside people, and make sure people get justice and not a single person suffers from starvation, remains homeless, is deprived of treatment and education. Discharge your responsibilities keeping eyes on these issues, we want that,” she said.

Talking about the food scarcity in the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe, the prime minister said the food scarcity has increased around the world and many countries are suffering from this. “Not a single inch of arable land be left behind from cultivation.”

Keeping this view in mind, we’ve to make sure there’s no scarcity of food and protein in the country.”

Hasina asked all concerned to add more food and processed food items to the country’s export basket.
