PM wants two new divisions
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said she wants to upgrade Faridpur and Cumilla to two new divisions after the names of two major rivers -- Padma and Meghna.
"I've decided to form two new divisions after two rivers -- one would be named after the Padma and another after the Meghna," she said.
The PM revealed it while opening the newly constructed office Bhaban for Awami League's Cumilla city unit virtually from the Gono Bhaban.
She said if the division is formed after the name of Cumilla, other districts might not be interested to join it.
Hasina said she would form Faridpur division after the name of Padma, another famous river of the country.
LGRD Minister Tazul Islam, AL Organising Secretary Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon and local AL MP AKM Bahauddin and other local AL leaders joined the event virtually from the new office building.
