The houses will be built at a cost of Tk13.43 lakh each 

The government will construct 30,000 Bir-Nibash throughout the country to provide housing facilities for insolvent freedom fighters.

"Marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the golden jubilee of Independence, the government is going to construct the one-storey houses," according to an official release.

Earlier, 14,000 houses were approved for the freedom fighters, but the government later decided to build 30,000 Bir-Nibash at a cost of Tk13.43 lakh per house.

Liberation Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq has given directives to the authorities concerned to maintain quality in the construction of the accommodations.

"A total of 30,000 Bir-Nibash will be constructed throughout the country for the insolvent veteran freedom fighters as the gift from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina," he said while inaugurating a training workshop for the field level officials of the Bir-Nibash construction project here on Sunday.

The Bir-Nibash will be constructed through upazila-wise implementation committees to ease project implementation.

The minister also asked the officials concerned to capture video clips while building the houses and to ensure the presence of the heroic freedom fighters who have been allocated the houses.

Director General of the National Freedom Fighters Council M Johrul Islam Sohel, Additional Secretary of the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs Kamrun Nahar, Project Director of Bir-Nibash construction project M Idris Siddique, Managing Director of Bangladesh Freedom Fighters Welfare Trust SM Mahbubur Rahman, among others, attended the workshop.
