Planning Minister MA Mannan said the government has given electricity to every house. Even if the electricity is a little less now, everything will be fixed after a month. 

“We are in some difficulty at this time due to less money. This problem is not created by us, it has been created by other states which have fallen upon us. Be patient. Everything will be fine,” he said.

He said these things at the financial donation distribution ceremony from the voluntary fund at FIVDB hall in Sunamganj’s Shantiganj upazila around 11:30 am on Monday.

The minister said the government has tried to alleviate the suffering of flood-affected people. The government will do more. They are with the people in need. 

Noting that no previous governments have taken such an initiative to provide houses on 2-Shatak of land for landless people, MA Mannan said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wants the people of the country to live in peace.

The Planning Minister said the poor suffered more in this flood. Their houses were washed away. The government is helping them and will do more. Sheikh Hasina’s government is the government of the poor. 

Shantiganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Md. Anwaruzzaman, upazila vice chairman Lecturer Nur Hossain and others were present at the financial donation distribution ceremony. 

At that time, 428 people of the upazila received Tk 535,000, Tk 1,250 for each person.
