This is for the first time since the present caretaker government took the power that a conference of the elected members of local government was held.
Nearly eleven thousand local government members were present in the rally where the Chief Advisor Fakhruddin Ahmed gave a call to build up a corruption –free country. He said that local administration can play effective roles to curb corruption through social movements. He also assured that objectives suggested by the committee would be materialized.
The Chief Advisor also said that a hundred thousand tons of rice would be imported in order to curb the price-hike of this staple food. He said that the rice import from India is now on a final process. Besides the government is also trying to import rice from Thailand and Vietnam.
