Bangladesh to be homeless-free country soon: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said Bangladesh will become a homeless and landless-free coun-try after the distribution of only 11,000 homes.

She told the envoy that her government has constructed apartments for slum dwellers, where they can reside paying the similar rent they used to pay in slums. In addition, apartments for cleaning workers have also been constructed by her government while homeless people are being given homes under the Asrayan project, she said.
“Actually, the target of my government is that there will be no homeless and landless people in Bangla-desh,” she added.
