Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said there should be rules and regulations for online media to reduce cyber crime.
The Prime Minister said this while addressing the council of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) at National Press Club.
She urged the journalists to properly publish the good activities of her government in the interest of the country, neither for her own gains nor her party’s.
“We don’t want mercy and favour from anyone. But we at least can demand that if we do any good work for the country, it should be published in a good manner, not in my interest nor my party, but in the interest of the country,” she said.
“We are establishing flat for journalists. We made eighth wage board. We have plan for ninth wage board,” she said.
“We have supplied internet service in whole country so that journalist can send news from any where. We have launched Bangabandhu-1 satellite successfully by which we will get internet service very easily,” she said.
“Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman also was involved with journalism in his student life. So, we have family relation with journalists. We have trained 12,000 journalists in free cost,” the premier said
"We will celebrate bangabandhu’s birth anniversary in 2020. We have taken Vision 2021 and Vision 2041 programmes to turn the country into a happy and prosperous Sonar Bangla," she said
Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, State minister of Ministry of Information Tarana Halim, Prime Minister's Media Adviser Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury were present on the occasion.
