Finance Minister AMA Muhith has claimed that the slums in Sylhet are more developed than the ones in Kolkata.
He made the statement at a view exchange programme held in Sylhet on Saturday, reports the Bangla Tribune.
Muhith said: “The slums here [Sylhet] get all sorts of facilities. The government is also in favour of Sylhet’s development.”
The minister said: “Usually the public have knowledge about government’s development work across the country but it is slightly different in case of Sylhet.
“The people have no idea about the development works here,” he said adding that billboards will be put up to inform the people about the development works.
