Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the government has taken all preparations to face the possible flood situation in the country. 

“We can face any kind of crisis, but we must stay alert to tackle the flood,” she said while addressing at the signing ceremony of the Annual Performance Agreement (APA) of the Ministry and the organizations under their respective offices on Saturday. 

“The flood water in the hill or haor area or the country’s high places will gradually fall into the lower areas. By the end of August, the flood water will gradually fall into the middle and lower parts of the country, causing massive floods,” said Sheikh Hasina. 

Terming the flood as nature’s rule, the Prime Minister said that the flood brings some blessings. “It helps in land fertility and recharge of underground water.”

Referring that the food production is good after the flood, Sheikh Hasina said, “We must be careful so that people are not harmed due to flood.”
