Concerted efforts to establish good governance underscored
RAJSHAHI, Sept 26, 2022 (BSS)- Concerted efforts of all the government and
non-government organizations concerned can be the best way of establishing
good government in the delivery process of public services.
The present government under the dynamic and visionary leadership of Prime
Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working relentlessly to ensure good
governance in the public service delivery sector.
So, all the officials and staff of district, upazila and union level offices
should discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty to supplement
the government endeavor.
The views were expressed at a stakeholders meeting on establishing good
governance hosted by the Commissioner Office of Rajshahi division at its
conference hall today.
Divisional Commissioner GSM Zafarullah addressed the meeting as the chief
guest, while Additional Commissioner Dr Ziaul Haque was in the chair.
Additional Commissioner Abu Taher Muhammad Masud Rana, Superintendent of
Police Shahjahan Mian, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Rajshahi
Metropolitan Police Golam Ruhul Quddus and Additional Deputy Commissioner
Kolyan Chowdhury also spoke on the occasion.
Giving an illustration of the present government's achievements in various
development sectors Commissioner Zafarullah said the government has been
implementing diversified programmes to establish good governance in the
service delivery activities.
He said there are five good governance tools related to National Integrality
Strategy (NIS), Right to Information (RTI), Citizen Charter, Grievance
Redress System (GRS) and Annual Performance Agreement (APA).
In addition infusing dynamism into the public services, transparency and
accountability are being ensured in the services, including recruitment in
government jobs, benefiting the service-recipients as a whole.
The use of the NIS tool has started to make the public service deliveries
vibrant because it has brought a new dimension as a result of engaging the
people in the service delivery process.
Over 36 persons consisting of government officials, development activists,
business leaders, valiant freedom fighters, members of the civil society and
journalists joined the meeting sharing views on how they supplement the
