The deputy commissioners are taking their conference, to be held in the capital from July 24 to 26, seriously as they will get government instructions on the next parliamentary elections at the meeting.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to inaugurate the three-day conference at her office on Tuesday morning.
The deputy commissioners will also meet President Abdul Hamid at Bangabhaban during the conference.
The government is giving emphasis to the DC conference as the next general election is going to be held a few months after the meeting.
The cabinet division has already called for proposals from the district administrations to make the conference successful.
Accordingly, the deputy commissioners of different districts have already sent their proposals to the respective divisional commissioners to submit them to the cabinet division.
Tofail Ahmed, deputy commissioner of Moulvibazar, said he has sent a few proposals from his district to the divisional commissioner of Sylhet.
“I’ve emphasised the development projects and tourism in my proposals,” he added.
Though the government is yet to announce the schedule of the conference, sources at the cabinet division confirmed the aforesaid dates for the conference.
The conference will have a total of 22 sessions, including 18 working sessions, like the conference in the previous year.
During the conference, 58 ministries and divisions of the government will discuss the proposals from the deputy commissioners to make a work plan for next year.
They will also review the implementations of the decisions taken in last year’s conference.
The cabinet division arranges DC conference every year to make an opportunity for DCs to hold talks with the divisional commissioners and high policy makers of the government.
During the conference, the DCs are given instructions, including policy, ideology and priorities of the government, from the higher policy makers.
The proposals from the deputy commissioners will be put on the agenda of the conference after the careful scrutiny of the cabinet division.
In presence of ministers, state ministers, deputy ministers and advisers to the prime minister, the proposals are discussed at different sessions of the conference with cabinet secretary in the chair.
The DCs from across the country sent a total of 349 proposals for the conference last year.
Of them, some 321 proposals were discussed at different sessions of the conference.
The prime minister usually listens to details of the demands from deputy commissioners at the conference.
The premier subsequently gives the DCs instructions based on their demands and statements in the conference every year.
