The government is offering all the opportunities at the remote village level under ‘My village, my town’ philosophy of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. In this regard to construct a village in a planned way the government is considering the matter that if anyone wants to construct house then he or she has to obtain permission from local Union Parishad authority. The information was delivered by LGRD Minister Md. Tazul Islam.

The minister said this as the chief guest while participating a virtual meeting titled ‘Mayor dialogue: Safe, sustainable and inclusive city’ jointly organized by Save the Children and Bangladesh Institute of Planners from his official residence at Mintu Road in the capital on Wednesday.

Tazul Islam said, permission should be taken from a proper authority to construct houses, shops, mosque-madrasas, educational institutions, hospitals, clubs or offices or any type of infrastructure at the village level. In this regard Union Parishad can be given the responsibility.

He said, if it cannot be controlled by certain authority then unplanned homes and business establishments would be constructed. Union Parishad can be empowered in this regard and to avert misuse committed by them Upazila Parishad will be attached in this process. Punishment will be awarded if anybody misuses his power. Without prior permission nobody will be permitted to construct home or other establishment on the cultivable land.

The program was moderated by Bangladesh Institute of Planners general secretary Adil Mohammad Khan where DNCC Mayor and Mayors of other city corporations such as Khulna, Rajshahi, Chattogram, Narayanganj, Gazipur and Mymensingh also participated.
