‘Women being supported  to become self-reliant’

Chattogram Bureau :
Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury Jabed MP said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken various steps
to create women entrepreneurs in the country. Women are being supported with money and training to become
self-reliant. The Prime Minister thinks that half of the country’s population is women.
“If they are aware, the country will progress a lot. The current government has been providing various benefits to women including old age allowance, widow allowance, and maternity allowance, free education opportunities for women students, which was not given during any other government. This assistance will continue only if the Awami League government is in power in the future. Otherwise it will be closed,” he said. He also said these things in the speech of the chief guest at the certificate and allowance ceremony organised by the National Women’s Association at a community center in Anwara Upazila on Sunday afternoon.
Chaired by former MP and National Women’s Organisation Chairman Chemon Ara Tayyab, Anwara Upazila Chairman Touhidul Haque Chowdhury, Upazila Executive Officer were special guests in the event.
