Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday proposed to set up two divisions after the names of "Padma" with Faridpur and its surrounding districts and "Meghna" with Cumilla and its neighbouring districts.
Responding to the demand of local Awami League MP AKM Bahauddin for formation of a division with Cumilla, she said, “I’ve decided to form two new divisions after two rivers- one would be named after Padma and another after Meghna.”
The premier was opening the newly-constructed office Bhaban for Awami League’s Cumilla City unit virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.
LGRD Minister Tazul Islam, AL organising secretary Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon and local Awami League MP AKM Bahauddin and other local AL leaders joined the virtual the function from the new office building.
