The minister said Chittagong will be a beautiful city. There is the God Gifted Opportunity. If you can drive the Marine to Outer Ring Road, Cox’s Bazar, there will be thousands of five star hotels. Rocket science will not be needed for this.Only Chittagong will take the whole country forward with the tourism sector. But the infrastructure so as not to bring the misfortune of the future.
‘The Prime Minister is sincere about Chittagong.That is why he has given so many projects and money.Give more if I can use. Earlier,Mohiuddin Chowdhury used to say, income has to be generated.Now the government is helping. ’
He said,”I will give you that salutation.”But I will not give up if I do not get what I get.Once WASA does not pay for civil aviation.I said, cut the water line. I don’t believe that people don’t give.People need to be motivated.
‘If the cost of water is 22 rupees, you pay 9 rupees.Everyone has to pay holding tax.The local government will do all the work for the welfare of the people. Sustainable development needs to be ensured in project implementation. Even if it costs more than 10 rupees, why the fight will continue throughout the year?Heavy metal is flying in the dust. People are getting sick. Covered lanes should be kept on the side of the road for all utility lines.Do a lot of sluicegates in waterlogging elimination projects. MS, GS sheets will be damaged.Drain, culvert must be done properly. ’
