In such a reality, he urged to be frugal, thrift and increase food production to control the situation.

Sheikh Hasina said that today we can see the footsteps of a famine all over the world, the people of the country should be saved from its effects. So not even an inch of land should remain uncultivated. Let him produce whatever is possible for him.
Encouraging rooftop gardens, the Prime Minister said that if something can be produced there, the pressure on the market will be reduced.
He said, I will say again, everyone should be active towards increasing the production, so that the people of Bangladesh do not suffer due to the shock of the global economic recession. We have to make our own arrangements.
“From now on we all have to be austere. must save. We must be careful not to overspend on anything. Because the economic situation of the world is getting worse day by day, you say USA, you say Europe, you say England everywhere but… today they are not able to provide electricity, they are ordering to limit the use of water.
