Rural Development

Rural development means development of village. Bangladesh is a land of villages. More than 80 percent of her people love in villages. So the importance of villages in our body politic is great. The development of the entire country depends on the welfare of these villages. So it is essential to keep the villages in a flourishing condition.
In our country rural development has various aspects. The most industries, fishery, co-operative society’s community life etc.
A good communication is essential for the development of the villages. With this end in view our government has taken some practical measures. Many new roads have been constructed and many old roads and culverts have been repaired. There are also some pucca roads. Now-a-days we see that buses, auto rickshaws, trucks, rickshaws etc move on the pucca roads in the rural areas. Today farmers are sending their products to towns and cities.
Education in the backbone of a nation. Without education a nation cannot prosper. It is education which illumines the soul, broadens the outlooks on life and dispels the darkness of ignorance. Bangladesh is a poor country. About 85% percent of her populations live in village. They do not know how to read and write. We can co reach the peak of prosperity and progress until and unless we can remove the curse of illiteracy from the lot of our people. Our government is determined to free the nation from the curse of illiteracy within a very short time.
Bangladesh is an agricultural country. Agriculture is the life blood of her economy. Again about eighty parcent of our people are engaged in agriculture who live in villages. Even in this modern scientific age our agriculture is very backward. But at present it is a very happy news that our government has taken active steps and necessary measures for the progress of agriculture, such as supplying the farmers with modern scientific tools for cultivation, good, seeds, fertilizer at a cheaper rate, agricultural loans in easy terms and many other things. Irrigation system has been improved.
As most of the villagers are illiterate, they have no knowledge of health and sanitation. Most of the villagers suffer from various diseases. But this miserable condition is changing slowly. Many hospitals, health facilities to the poor rural people.
 Pure drinking water was very scarce in the past. People used to drink water from ponds. As a result they suffered from many water born diseases. Now-a-days every village has at least one or more tube wells.
By raising more Poultry and cultivating fish more, we can develop our villages. Our government has paid much attention to these things. The poor villagers are given loan on easy terms. Many unused marshy lands have been brought under fish cultivation.
Through the development of the villages our country will reach the peak of progress and prosperity. Let us all come forward and work with concerted efforts to develop our villages.
