Terming the democracy and development as complementary to each other, president Abdul Hamid has urged all to put united efforts so that the hard-earned democracy is not hampered in anyway.
The president said the government has taken up a lot of programmes to turn Bangladesh into a middle income country by 2021 and a developed one by 2041. Implementation of these programmes needs tireless efforts, self-criticism and cooperation, and at the same time, dutifulness and sense of responsibility is needed in this regard, he added.
Congratulating the graduates, president Hamid said, “You are now the higher human resources of the country and I hope you would utilize your acquired knowledge and talents for the welfare of the humanity”.
“I hope you must work using your conscience. You must give interest of the country and the nation priority and uphold the liberation war spirit,” the president said.
The president said the Awami League-led present government has been working ceaselessly to take the country on the way of development and progress following the path of Bangabandhu and has attached top priority to spreading education for turning the population into human resource.
He asked the authorities of National University (NU) to design their curricula in such a way that the students can build them as skilled and efficient ones along with acquiring the degrees.
