The government wants to restore political faith and democratic norms by trying to get Awami League president Sheikh Hasina and BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to sit together, an adviser said on Monday.

"Making arrangements for the two leaders to sit across the table is not the government's only task. But it has a symbolic significance," commerce adviser Hossain Zillur Rahman told reporters at Chittagong Circuit House after a review meeting on the development of the port city.
 
"People will be able to rely on the politicians and a positive attitude will be there if it is done," he said.
 
The adviser asked politicians to make efforts to help overcome political and economic deadlock by giving up politics of feuds
 
He referred to the recent harsh comments of the leaders of the two rival political parties.
 
"The government is working to stop the tendency from proliferating further," Hossain Zillur said, hoping that the politicians would get over the past trend.
 
"The aftermath of 1/11 has made a positive impact on the people."
 
Asked which issues were given priority on the development of Chittagong, the commerce adviser said a list had been made of the industries who had earlier applied to get gas supplies and that would be done after the Ramadan.
 
"We have already invited tender to set up a project, capable of generating 50 megawatts of power in Chittagong," he said.
 
Another secretary level meeting would be held in Dhaka on the development of Chittagong, Hossain Zillur said.
 
The adviser also discussed the implementation of the decisions, taken by the interim cabinet on Aug 13.
