Then I inaugurated the Area Office of NKDA at the Utility Building in Action Area 2,near Akankha Rotary. This is to bring service delivery closer to people of Action Area 2 as well as to decongest existing office building of NKDA opposite Nazrul Tirtha:

  1. Thanks for the NKDA office in AA-IIC; was the need of the hour. Could you also tell them to have a small counter for electric bill. Since prepaid is not online; it would be convenient to have a counter here.
    And thanks for considering a post office in this building. This is also going to be a very convenient thing in future.
