120 homeless people to get brick-built houses in Gobindaganj

As many as 120 homeless people of Gobindaganj upazila in the district are going to get brick built houses having shed with corrugated iron sheets at the directive of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The homeless people will be given the houses on Mujib Year, the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Upazila administration accomplished the construction work of the houses under Ashrayan Project-2 of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) at the cost of TK 20.52 crore.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Ramkrishna Barman said around cent percent work had been completed and the houses are kept ready to handover to the selected beneficiaries.

Asked when the houses would be handed over to the beneficiaries, the UNO said, “The honorable prime minister will inaugurate the distribution of houses across the country virtually from Ganabhaban, Dhaka as early as possible.”

Then the upazila administration along with local public representatives would hand over the houses to the beneficiaries formally, he added.

A total of 846 houses are being built for the homeless people in the district marking the Mujib Year, said deputy commissioner (DC) Abdul Matin.
