PRIME Minister Sheikh Hasina today said the 122 ordinances promulgated during the immediate-past caretaker government regime would be disposed of in line with the rules of procedure of parliament, news agency UNB reports.
Hasina made the observations about the process of ratification of the ordinances during her talk with visiting Danish Minister for Climate and Energy Connie Hedegaard when she called on the PM at the Prime Minister’s Office in the morning.
As the Danish minister wanted to know about the status of the ordinances, the PM informed her that the opposition has representation on the Parliamentary Special Committee and the committee, in collaboration with experts, is working to settle the matter within 30 working days of the parliament.
The prime minister further stated that her newly elected government is fully committed to eradicating poverty from Bangladesh and thus building up a modern and prosperous country by the year 2021, the golden jubilee of the country’s independence.
She informed the Danish minister about her government’s plan for dredging all main rivers of the country as a major step to face climate change and increase agricultural production as well as overall development of the country.
The Danish minister formally handed Sheikh Hasina the letter of felicitation from Denmark’s prime minister on assumption of her office as prime minister.
Hasina and Connie had deep and elaborate discussion on energy and the problems created due to increasing global warming as a consequence of climate change.
They also discussed how trade and business between Denmark and Bangladesh could be increased in future.
Denmark assured Bangladesh of providing necessary assistance for every development effort, particularly in facing the challenges of global climate change.
