Purbachal may have a discretionary zone:FM

Unfamiliar clergyman AK Abdul Momen on Thursday said it very well might be important to set up a discretionary zone in Purbachal because of land emergency in Gulshan and Baridhara territories. 

He offered the comments while answering to an inquiry from Mozaffar Hossain, MP (Jamalpur-5) in Parliament. 

'There's an interest for land from a few consulates/high commissions for moving all the government offices/high commission workplaces in Baridhara discretionary zone. Be that as it may, land shortage is a significant issue. The Ministry of Housing and Public Works, Rajuk and different specialists concerned are in touch in such manner,' the clergyman said. 

Momen said the application for plots by 10 unfamiliar missions is as of now under cycle at the Foreign Ministry. 'Particularly, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Oman, Kuwait, Myanmar and Afghanistan have been making demands in such manner since the launch of their missions.' 

Also, he stated, they got a sign that among the 50 political missions in Dhaka which are not utilizing their assigned or self-bought grounds may show interest to get plots. 

The pastor said Dhaka city is seeing fast extension as different improvement exercises are in progress in the capital city. 

'It's exceptionally hard to oversee adequate land in the Gulshan and Baridhara political zones of Dhaka against the new interest for setting up government offices. In light of the current situation, it very well might be important to set up a political zone in Purbachal to set up unfamiliar missions,' he noticed. 

Reacting to another inquiry from Shahiduzzaman Sarker, MP (Naogaon-2), Abdul Momen said the Hungarian government has looked for the assent of the Bangladesh government to set up a consular office here. 

He said Hungary's application is being prepared while talks are in progress to set up a government office of South African in Bangladesh.
