PM asks civil servants to be innovative


PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today urged civil servants to work with innovative ideas in resolving problems of their respective areas and implementing development programmes keeping in mind local perspectives.

“These trainings should not be taken as a routine thing, the trainings should be used for the welfare of the people,” she told the function organised by Public Administration Ministry.
