BD committed to stamping out poverty: Muhith

FE Report


Finance Minister AMA Muhith on Friday stressed the need for turning Bangladesh into a poverty-free, happy and prosperous country for the present and future generations.

"We have achieved a lot and we are firmly committed to eradicating poverty. We will not keep any place of deprivation and negligence in the society," he added.

The finance minister was speaking as the chief guest at the 'Bangabandhu Utsab' at the Institute of Fine Arts of Dhaka University (DU).

Bangladesh Sangskritic Jote organised the programme on the occasion of the 98th birthday of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The programme was also attended, among others, by Minister of Primary and Mass Education Advocate Mostafizur Rahman, DU VC AAMS Arefin Siddique, director general of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy Liakot Ali Laki and drama personality Dr Enamul Haque.

Mentioning Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as the greatest Bangalee of all times, Mr Muhith said Bangabandhu is not only the greatest Bangalee of thousands of years but also he is the all-time greatest Bangalee whose birth and life were only for establishing this country.

"We recall his contribution with great reverence and we will materialise his dream of Sonar Bangla, he added.

The minister expressed his gratitude to Bangabandhu and three million martyrs for presenting a free and sovereign country to the nation.

Advocate Mostafizur Rahman said Bangabandhu is the pride of the nation.

Mr AAMS Arefin Siddique said it was a great day when Bangabandhu was born and the day is also observed as National Children Day.

"Bangabandhu liked to spend time with children and children of this generation also should know his lifestyle, patriotism and self-sacrifice for the country," he added.
