Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the government is careful so that prompt action can be taken against any kind of child oppression in the country.
She said that we are taking steps to ensure the security of children. We are giving special attention to it so that prompt action can be taken against any kind of child oppression.
The Prime Minister said this while inaugurating World Children’s Day and Child Rights Week 2020 at Bangladesh Shishu Academy Auditorium on Monday. She attended the program virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.
She said the government wants the children to remain safe and secure, get a beautiful life and be brought up as good human beings. “That’s our aim.”
Recalling the brutal attacks of August 15, 1975, where Sheikh Russel along with other children were also killed with the Father of the Nation and his family members, Hasina said any death of children shocks her seriously. No matter whether it happens — in our country or abroad, whether it occurs in the Bay of Bengal or on the beach of the Mediterranean Sea — every incident hurts me.
The Prime Minister said she wants this world to be a reliable, livable and peaceful place for the children where each of them will have a bright future.
Reiterating that children are the future of the nation, the Prime Minister said they need to be built as worthy citizens of the country.
She said the government has arranged classes for the students in TV and online so that their academic activities could be carried on during this pandemic. “We’re using technology in this regard and will request the guardians to take proper steps, too.”
The Prime Minister said that studies, sports and cultural activities are very much needed for children to make them as worthy citizens of the country. “Children have to pay attention to their studies as no one can contribute to the country without education.
