Dhaka, Jan 8 (UNB) - State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid has said they will now pay more attention to the development of the country’s energy sector.
“We had given more time for the development of the power sector in the previous years. Now, we’ll concentrate more on the energy sector,” he told the officials of his ministry who gathered to greet him at the Bidyut Bhaban in the city on Tuesday.
This was Nasrul Hamid’s first meeting with the officials after his reappointment as state minister for power, energy and mineral resources.
The junior minister suggested that the officials should not feel hesitation in making any decision. “You have to take decisions promptly instead of making any delay on any issue,” he said.
As Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina holds the portfolio of his ministry, Nasrul Hamid described it as a rare opportunity for him to work under her direct supervision.
He said he will devise plans for his ministry in the next three months and then go for implementing those in the next four and half years. “Our main target will be the year of 2021 and all plans will be made keeping in mind that target,” he added.
The state minister also directed the officials to have a mindset to work 24/7 a month.
He also warned all against corruption.
