News Asia24 Desk: It is not enough to know the total population, it is important to know the classification and data of different age groups, said the Minister of Local Government Md. Tajul Islam
He said that in determining any policy, the information for which type of people that policy is being taken, for which age group of people and for how many people is being taken is also very important.
