Prepare to go to the moon: Children’s Prime Minister


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the children to prepare for conquering the moon by excelling in science and research. He said, ‘One day we will go to the moon. So you have to prepare in that way from now on.’

The Prime Minister made this call to the students while inaugurating the ‘Bangabandhu Corner’ at Gimadanga Tungipara Model Government Primary School in Tungipara, Gopalganj on Saturday (July 6). In this school founded in 1912, which commemorates Bangabandhu, he also unveiled the album titled ‘Eso Bangabandhuke Jani’ drawn by children with special needs.

Sheikh Hasina said, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had a special love for people from his childhood. From childhood he worked for people. He did not see any happiness or benefits in his life. Only one thought was how to free the people of this country from poverty. His aim was how to give a better life and so that little children can have a better life.

The head of government said, I think that the initiative taken here today or children with special needs to make an album with their drawings or to show the history through pictures – actually the pictures speak and through this children are getting an opportunity to know the history.

Prime Minister, Minister like me will come out from among you, you will go to big places, do research, become scientists. And we’ll go to the moon someday, no worries. So everyone has to prepare and study that way from now on.’

Earlier, Prime Minister Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was welcomed by the students when he reached the school where he studied. During this time he exchanged skills with the students and inquired about them.

The Prime Minister paid his respects at the tomb of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in Tungipara on Saturday morning. He recited the Fateha there and joined the prayers for the peace of the departed souls of the family members of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the martyrs of August 15.
