No paucity of fund in constructing embankments: Manju

Water Resources Minister Anowar Hossain Monju today said there will be no paucity of fund for constructing embankments as the present government is committed to solving all problems in haor areas in the next financial year.

It would require no permission for any person to go to the water resources minister for discussing flood-related problems with him as Sheikh Hasina’s government is very sincere for balanced development of the country, he told while speaking at a discussion meeting with the local leaders here at Jamalganj upazila complex of the district.

Local MP Engineer Moazzem Hossain Ratan, senior secretary Dr Jafar Ahmed Khan and Shunamganj Bacaho Anodoloner President Advocate Bazlul Mazid Khashru, among others, attended the meeting with deputy commissioner of the district M Sabirul Islam in the chair.

Earlier, the minister attended a farmers’ rally organized by Fenarkbak and Vimkhali unions to see for himself the Kanaikhali river excavation and water-logging problems.

The minister said his government is pledge-bound to provide necessary financial assistance for river excavation.
