Dhaka, Oct 17 (UNB) - Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday unveiled the cover of an 11-volume compilation of book titled “Ninth Jatiya Sangsad: Prime Minister’s Question-Answer” at her office here.
In the book, the readers will be able to know about the characteristics of Prime Minister and Leader of the House Sheikh Hasina’s deep wisdom, determination and willingness to build the country apart from a comprehensive concept about the massive development that took place in various sectors in the country.
Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim acted as the chief editor of the compilation while PM’s Speech Writer Md Nazrul Islam compiled and edited it.
Director General of the Department of Films and Publications Mohammad Ishtaque Hossain made the overall management of the compilation in association with PM’s Assistant Press Secretary MM Emrul Kayas.
The 9th parliamentary elections were held on December 29, 2008. The Awami League-led Grand Alliance secured absolute majority in the polls.
Sheikh Hasina took the charge of prime minister for the second time on January 6, 2009.
She introduced the prime minister’s question-answer session for the first time in Parliament to give the parliamentary democracy an institutional shape.
Because of her sincere efforts, the trend of filling the chairman posts of parliamentary standing committees of ministries from general members instead of ministers concerned was introduced to ensure transparency and accountability of different ministries.
These epoch-making initiatives helped make the government activities more transparent and accountable.
