Call to implement recommendations on Union Parishad

Speakers at a roundtable yesterday urged the caretaker government to implement the recommendations concerning the Union Parishad made by the committee on local government affairs.
They also said the government should implement the recommendations immediately as previous governments had also taken many initiatives to strengthen Union Parishad but failed to implement them.
Swashashita Union Parishad Advocacy Group-Bangladesh organised the roundtable on 'Review on local government committee's report' at Diploma Engineers Institution in the city.
Advocacy Group General Secretary Matiur Rahman Tapan said the recommendations on Union Parishad will help keep Union Parishad free from political pressure.
"Transparency in the activities of union parishad will be ensured if the recommendations are implement," he said while presenting the keynote paper.
Dr Badiul Alam Majumdar, general secretary of Sushasaner Janney Nagorik (Sujon), said that although the committee's report has some weak points, the recommendations will help strengthen the Union Parishad.
Former lawmakers Golam Sarwar Milon and GM Kader, Prof Asaduzzaman and several UP chairmen also spoke at the roundtable moderated by Advocacy Group President Abul Hossain Khan.
