Taking a swipe at critics of the newly unveiled budget proposal, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that some people find faults in everything and it is a kind of "mental illness."

"There are some people who have mental health issues... they like nothing. When a democratic system exists and development is being achieved, they do not see anything good in that. It's a kind of [mental] illness," Hasina said while replying to a question at a press conference on the proposed budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year, at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) in the capital on Friday.

The prime minister was briefing journalists in place of Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal, who fell ill on Thursday while presenting the budget proposal in the parliament, reports UNB.

"I do not know what research they [research organizations] are doing. The main thing is whether the general people are happy or not, whether we are being able to do good for them," she said at the press briefing.

"I do not know what their research can bring for the country. Our target is to make the country free of poverty and do development... we are working to this end... Bangladesh is no longer a country of beggars," said the prime minister.

She went on to say: "Those who want to criticize, let them do it... if they say anything good, we'll accept that, if they say anything bad, we'll reject it."
