Proposed budget concerns people’s interest: Quader

BSS

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday said the government has proposed the new budget for the 2018-19 fiscal considering the interest of the people and the development of the country, reports BSS.

“A big budget is a big challenge. . . Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given a big budget as she has the courage to implement it,” the minister said, replying to a query from journalists while visiting the Meghna Launch Ghat in Narayanganj. Quader categorically said the new budget was placed in parliament considering the problems of the people of all professions and classes.

In the budget, lakhs of people have been brought under the Social Safety Net coverage and priority has been given to the interest of the poor people, he added.

The new budget was proposed yesterday and it is yet to be passed, he said, adding that there will be discussions on the budget before passing it in the Jatiya Sangsad.

The AL general secretary criticized the remarks of the BNP leaders on the proposed budget and said, “The unrestrained remarks of

BNP give the impression that the new budget has been good.”

In reply to a question, Quader said, “All necessary preparations have been taken to ensure smooth journey on the roads and highways for the home-goers during the Eid vacation.”

He said the ferry services on the Meghna River will resume on June 12 while on Gomti river before the Eid-ul-Azha after the necessary dredging work in the river.
