Ahead of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's visit to Jessore, the district headquarters wore a festive look with hundreds of billboards, banners and arches welcoming her and projecting the successes of her regime.
Alongside an overzealous Awami League, the local administration is working to give the town a facelift by renovating and decorating important establishments there.
Hasina is scheduled to visit Jessore on Sunday to inaugurate 18 recently concluded projects and lay foundation stones of another 12 projects.
She will also attend a rally at the Jessore Eidgah field in the evening, organized by local Awami League.
