    Background: The economy of Bangladesh is in a critical state, Prime Minister Sheikh Mujibur Rahman said on Sunday (18 March). The Prime Minister, who was addressing a crowded public meeting on the occasion of Swapath Dibash (Oath-taking Day), said the only solution was to achieve optimum production swiftly.

    He said that in view of the chronic shortage of food, self-sufficiency in agricultural production was of utmost economic importance. The Prime Minister said he had directed the Planning Commission to prepare a scheme for becoming self-sufficient at the end of the first Five-Year Plan. He wanted to see very inch of available land used -- and warned the people "produce or perish".
