'We will build homes for the poor'
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said her government will build homes free of cost for the poor and the destitute. In her 40-minute speech at the inaugural session of the Awami League's 20th national council, party President Hasina highlighted the her government's development activities in various sectors, including health, education, ICT, health, agriculture, taken for the welfare of the people. She urged Awami League leaders and workers to take oaths to stamp out poverty from Bangladesh asking them to make lists of poor in their respective areas for their rehabilitation so they could live with dignity. "Make lists of the poor, age-old, disable people of your area who are living without any shelter and livelihood. We will give them home without cost and take measures so that they can live with the dignity of human beings," she told the party members. By 2041, she said, Awami League wants to build a Bangladesh where there will be no poverty. "The growth will be 8% to 10% and poverty will came down to zero percent," the prime minister said. "Awami League is an organisation of people. It is our duty to ensure the welfare of people. There will be no poverty if we can ensure the welfare of people. It is our commitment that there will be no poverty in the country," she said. With Hasina's speech the first session of the council came to a close.
