No one can stop Bangladesh progress ...Sajeeb Wazed Joy

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ICT adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has said Bangladesh is moving ahead in every sector very fast.

‘No one could have imagined that Bangladesh would advance in such a pace in the last six years,’ he told a civic reception at the Park Lane Hotel in London on Sunday.

The UK unit of Awami League accorded the reception to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her outstanding achievements in different fields, particularly the implementation of the much-awaited Land Boundary Agreement (LBA) with India.

Held with UK Awami League President Sultan Mahmud Sharif in the chair, the function was addressed, among others, PM’s ICT Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam and UK Awami League Joint Secretary Anwaruzzaman Chowdhury.

Joy said it was his personal dream to make Digital Bangladesh.

‘There was nothing like digital in the country 5-6 years back. But, Bangladesh now made a tremendous progress in digitisation,’ he said.

The PM’s ICT adviser went on saying, ‘Our dream is big and we’re taking the country forward in every sector like education, health, agriculture and development.’

He said there are many things to do for building Digital Bangladesh. ‘Our goal is now to take the optical fibre up to the union level, set up multimedia classroom in every school and establish an ICT training centre at every university.’

At the function, noted journalist Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury read out a citation presented to the Prime Minister by expatriate Bangladeshis and the UK Awami League, while UK Awami League General Secretary Syed Sajedur Rahman Faruk conducted the function.

A number of British House of Commons members spoke at the function after receiving bouquets and a book, ‘Unfinished Memoirs of Bangabandhu’ from the Prime Minister.

They included Labour Party MP from Hampstead and Killbern and granddaughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Tulip Rezwana Siddique, Labour Party MP from Cardiff Central Jo Stevens, Labour Party MP from Ilford North Wes Streeting, Labour Party MP from Ilford South Mike Gapes and Conservative Party MP from Sutton and Cheap Paul Scully.
