PM urges all to remain alert, keep children away from militancy
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday urged all to remain alert so that students and children do not take the wrong path of terrorism, militancy and drug addiction.
"A new phenomenon of terrorism, militancy and drug addiction has emerged in the world..........it's my fervent call to people from all strata of life, including guardians and teachers, to create massive awareness so that students and children do not indulge in these menaces. I'll urge all to pay special attention to this," she said.
She also said if awareness could be raised, the country will surely be freed from terrorism and militancy.
Hasina said this while distributing cheques of special donation among the scientists and researchers of various universities, organisations and agencies under the Bangabandhu Fellowship and National Science and Technology (NST) Fellowship at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium in Dhaka.
The ministry of Science and Technology organised the event, reports UNB.
The PM also called upon the teachers and guardians to be more careful about their academic activities.
She called upon the students to spontaneously come forward in the science-based education to meet the growing demand of scientists, technologists and manpower in various sectors and reach the country to its desired target of development.
Earlier, the Prime Minister distributed Bangabandhu Fellowship to two recipients, NST fellowship to four and cheques of Research Grant among four recipients.
Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science and Technology Ministry Dr AFM Ruhal Haque also spoke at the programme chaired by Science and Technology Minister Architect Yeafesh Osman.
