President asks govt officers to perform duties properly

President M Abdul Hamid on Sunday asked government officials to do their jobs properly staying at their assigned places to gear up the development of local areas as well as the whole country.

“Do your job properly staying at your respective assigned places. . . If you don’t have such mentality to stay at remote haor areas, you better quit, he said. He was addressing a public gathering at Rashtropati Abdul Hamid Government Degree College ground here this evening.

The President categorically issued a note of warning to government officers working in remote haor areas, saying, “Whatever you do here, work honestly and then this area as well as the whole country will be developed.”

The head of sate directed them not to misuse their time to reach their respective working places from long distances and to give up this trend for the greater interest of the nation.

Expressing grave concern over the lack of quality education in haor region to compete with the national standard for getting suitable jobs, President Hamid observed that the haor region still remains backward.  “Education doesn’t mean to pass SSC, HSC or Honours levels, it should be the marinating quality which is suitable for getting jobs in this competitive world,” he observed. The President advised students to learn properly to get a good job and prepare themselves for competing, globally.

Referring to local developments, he stressed on proper maintenance of all development work and urged the public representatives, distinguished personalities and local administration to remain vigilant in this connection.

Abdul Hamid is on a weeklong visit to his ancestral home district, Kishoreganj. Today is the fourth day of his tour. During the tour he also called upon all political leaders, social and cultural organizations to work together to gear up the ongoing development work as, “It’s impossible for me to ensure that alone.”

Terming the connecting roads here a greater opportunity for the haor region, the President said if it is possible to ensure fair and proper management of all these development projects, it could be turned into a tourist spot and would help change the region.

Abdul Hamid, who was earlier elected lawmaker for seven times from the haor area, suggested the elected public leaders to maintain good relations with the people the way maintained before the elections.

He urged all, irrespective of party affiliation, to work together to ensure sustainable development.
