Mahbub Ali said, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman loved Chittagong with all his heart. Bangabandhu wanted to show the natural beauty of Bangladesh to the world. But after the assassins brutally killed him in 1975, that was no longer possible. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working day and night to realize Bangabandhu’s dream.The prime minister has directed to make the facilities of the airports of international standards so that a tourist can understand the revolutionary change and development progress of Bangladesh. So the government is working to enrich our tourism industry. Apart from this, if the entrepreneurial class of the country comes forward, we will be able to achieve success in the tourism industry as well.
Md. Mahbub Ali also said that Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has undertaken a master plan in the field of tourism. There are instructions to complete all the ongoing development projects in Chittagong within a short period of time to enrich all potential sectors including the tourism industry of the country. Today Bangladesh is on the highway of development by holding the hand of Bangabandhu’s daughter.
