"We want to build the Bengalee as a modern tech-based nation, ensuring its economic emancipation.

She said the government is not only advancing the country economically but it has also given importance to technology-based education.
Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Awami League, said the government has ensured the scope to use various types of modern technologies, internet services and mobile phones.
She said Bangladesh is the only country in the subcontinent which came to being based on language. "Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman established the country."
