Houses are being constructed for the homeless across the country under Asrayan Project-2 with the funding of the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief. Meanwhile at Sujanagar upazila, the construction work of the houses is going on under the supervision of the Sujanagar upazila administration.
Pabna-2 MP Ahmed Firoz Kabir, Additional Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) Mohammad Shimul Akhter and Upazila Parishad Chairman Shahinuzzaman Shahin inspected the construction work of the houses. According to the relevant sources, the upazila administration is constructing these semi-detached houses following the design sent by the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief on the number one khas ledger of the government. Built at a cost of Tk 240,000, the houses have two bedrooms, a toilet, a kitchen and a balcony. Separate houses have been built for each family.
In this regard, Upazila Project Implementation Officer Nazmul Huda said, some changes have been made in the design of the third phase houses. And the construction work is going on properly following the new design. Upazila administration is supervising the construction work round the clock. Upazila Nirbahi Officer Raushan Ali said that 10 new houses are being constructed in Sinduri Bororia of Sagarkandi Union and 4 in Kanthalbaria of Bhayana Union for 14 more landless and homeless families in the third phase of the upazila as a gift from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the occasion of Mujib Year. The list of beneficiaries has been prepared only after the UP chairman verified the information of the uprooted and landless families from the local land office. Under this scheme, these houses will be provided free of cost to the landless-homeless widows, the helpless, the elderly and the disabled on priority basis.
As soon as the construction work is completed, according to the government instructions, new houses, land confession and other documents will be handed over to the landless and homeless families.
Earlier, in the first phase, 20 landless and homeless families of Sujanagar upazila and in the second phase, 12 landless and homeless families were given new houses with land ownership.
