I hope our problems will solve as soon as possible. Now Mrs. Monira Sultana wants a board for describing her opinions. Monira says Our budget is as like a story of 7 brothers.

World bank suddenly stopped their help. NBR also are not people's friendly. Richman reduce their tax in many ways but Poor are giving their tax properly. We can't do our budget democratically until it will friendly with peoples. Every district needs separate budget.

Mostofa is now handover the microphone to Mr. Abul Kalam Ajad. Ajad giving thanks to Dhaka University. Ajad says, In Egypt peoples are gained by Social network. In USA also have Unemployment problem. We starts our social forum lately. We want a different budget. Our parliament members don’t think about peoples demand. We make our budget for emergency. We don’t think about our peoples demand.
