Speakers at a press conference yesterday reiterated the need to strengthen the local government through developing district governance system.
The district local government could be the most effective and largest unit of the local government, which is neglected in the recommendation placed by the Local Government Affairs Committee, they added.
The Coalition for Good Governance organised the press conference at Dhaka Reporters' Unity (DRU) auditorium.
In its report, the Local Government Affairs Committee, formed by the caretaker government, has suggested three-tier governance system for the expansion of local government.
Though it has suggested specific guidelines for the development of union and upazila level, its guideline for the district level was not suitable for self-governed local body, said Aminur Rasul Babul, coordinator of the Coalition for Good Governance.
Besides, it is not possible to prepare development plan and ensure its implementation for the entire population of the district from the union and upazila level because of the administrative and structural limitations of the two stages, he added.
Chairperson of the Coalition for Good Governance Firoz M Hasan and Member Secretary Mahbubul Haque also spoke.
