That is, I will make the villages like cities. Now villages have become like cities. Sheikh Hasina’s development has defied some stories.
He said, “Eid, Puja-Parban rice at 15 taka per kg, 30 kg rice at taka 200, free rice, fair price card, TCB card, old age allowance, widow allowance, husband abandoned allowance, disabled allowance, freedom fighter allowance, maternity allowance. The government is giving 18 types of allowances. Again, the government’s money reaches women through mobile phones. We used to hear these in stories when we were young.

We want votes on boat brands. Voting will be held in a fair and festive environment. The voting will be conducted in the same way as everyone votes along the line.
