CHATTOGRAM: State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid said that the government has created congenial atmosphere for cultural activities in the country.

He was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of ‘Shyam-Shefali Mukto Mancha’ and ‘International Complex’ developed by Bangladesh Institute of Theatre Arts (BITA) at its Culture Development Centre under Patiya upazila in the district on Wednesday as the chief guest.

The state minister, in his speech, said that there was no scope to remember Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and practice progressive culture between the period of 1975 to 1996, and 2001 to 2008 in the country. After assuming power, the ruling Awami League has created scope for practicing cultural activities, said Khalid. BITA President Kamal Sengupta presided over the programme while Drama Personality M Hamid, Patiya upazila Chairman Motaherul Islam Chowdhury and BITA Executive Director Sisir Dutta were present among others.
