Govt to form 2 more divisions named Padma, Meghna: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said she wants to upgrade Faridpur and Cumilla as two new divisions -- named "Padma" and "Meghna".
"I've decided to form two new divisions named after the two rivers -- one would be named Padma and another Meghna," she said.
The Prime Minister said this while opening the newly-constructed office building for Awami League's Cumilla city unit virtually from her official residence Gono Bhaban.
She said if the division is named "Cumilla", other districts might not be interested to join it.
The PM said she will form Faridpur Division and name it "Padma".
LGRD Minister Tazul Islam, AL organising secretary Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon, local Awami League MP AKM Bahauddin and other local AL leaders joined the virtual function from the new office building.
