BSS, Rajshahi :
speakers at a discussion here on Wednesday mentioned the role of Local Government Institutions (LGIs) especially Union Parishad (UP) and its people is very important towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
They viewed UP is mandated for ensuring effective public service delivery at the grass-root level. All LGIs people should give their full efforts and commitments as a team to strengthen the capacity, ensure transparency and accountability in their respective Ups.

Chief Guest Dr Mozammel Haque said main motto of the SDGs is to leaving no one behind. "Bangladesh has become a role model for developing world. We have many successes in achieving MDGs and we want to continue it through achieving SDGs."
"The government has already aligned the global goals and targets with its 7th Five-Year Plan and we have already started our work to reach the goals", he added.
Dr Mozammel Khan said all the existing services being delivered towards the grassroots people need to be more coordinated and accelerated.
