ADP progress report submitted to PM


Reluctant attitudes of a section of government high ups especially of those engaged in various development projects, have made Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina unhappy, sources in the public administration ministry informed. According to sources, Sheikh Hasina was learnt to continue asking the concerned ministries, its divisions and directorates to expedite the ongoing development works and complete the projects in time. But callousness and reluctance of a section of government officials and the project directors were delaying the implementation of the prime minister's order.

Earlier Sheikh Hasina ordered the concerned ministries, its divisions and directorates to submit the progress report of Annual Development Programme 2019-'20 as she wanted to know the performance of the officials. Most of the ministries, its divisions and directorates submitted the progress report of ADP before her but some of those have not yet submitted the report yet.

Under such situation, Prime Minister asked those ministries, its divisions and directorates to submit their progress report of ADP before her immediately. On the other hand, the Prime Minister after going through the progress reports submitted by most of the ministries, divisions and directorates, expressed her dissatisfaction over the performance of government officials and directed them not to sit idle, the sources said.

'Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already taken zero tolerance policy against corruption, irregularities, drugs, militancy, tender manipulation, hooliganism and all sorts of immoral and illegal activities as she wants to establish good governance and a graft-free administration to reach her goal of building a hunger and poverty-free, developed and prosperous Bangladesh', told Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam to Bangladesh Post. He informed, rate of implementation of decisions of cabinet division during the third quarter (July- September) of this year is 58.49 percent.

Cabinet sources said, four cabinet meetings were held from July to September this year, total 53 decisions were taken and out of which 31 were implemented. Besides 22 decisions are in the implementation stage.
