Although Barisal is one of the six divisions, it has been neglected by all governments. All previous governments made promises but their words did not come true. Education is imperative for all development activities but there is no university in Barisal city. If we look at all other divisional cities, we will find a different picture. Even many district towns have public universities. Doesn't it bear testimony to the unequal treatment meted out to Barisal? Although the present government has already treated Barisal badly not including anyone in the cabinet from the region, we hope it will set up a university in the city in order to make Barisal a part of Digital Bangladesh.
