The government on Sunday put on hold the proposal to create two new divisions named after two major rivers of the country, Padma and Meghna.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Administrative Reforms Implementation Committee (NICAR) in the PMO chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Confirming the matter to the UNB, Cabinet Secretary Khandkar Anwarul Islam said that the proposal has been suspended as a large amount of money would be required to implement it.

On 22 November, the Cabinet Division finalized a proposal to create two new divisions, Padma and Meghna.

The proposed Padma division would comprise five districts of Faridpur and the Meghna division would consist of six districts – three each from Kamilla and Noakhali.
