In fact depends on the secretaries how the country will run- Hasina
BNA, DHAKA, July 2, 2017 – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina described secretaries as the “main driving force of a government” saying a political government come to power only for a certain period while a secretary has the opportunity to serve the country for a longer period. “So it in fact depends on the secretaries how the country will run,” she told a meeting with the secretaries of different ministries and divisions at Bangladesh Secretariat here.
The premier urged the government officials to be more sincere in completing the Fast Track projects within stipulated time frame.
Prime Minister today asked top bureaucrats of her government to fix strategies for faster implementation of development budget from the beginning of the new fiscal. “The rate of implementing annual development budget should be higher than the existing proportion,”
The premier added: “So you (secretaries) have to sketch out strategies at the beginning of the year now for implanting development budget instead of speeding up your efforts at the later part of the fiscal.”
Her meeting with the secretaries came on completion of the third year of the second tenure of her government in the office while this was her second such meeting with the top brass of the civil administration during her current term in office.
“Paper work of the projects and inter ministerial meeting, if required, must be completed within the rainy season and physical work of the projects must start immediately after the monsoon,” she said.
