State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Junaid Ahmed Palak on Saturday called on everyone to participate in the cultural revolution in building ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, reports BSS.
“The goal of the long struggle at the call of Bangabandhu was to achieve economic, social and political independence. A non-communal liberal democratic Bangladesh as per Bangabandhu’s dream can be built only through a cultural revolution,” Palak said while addressing the virtual launching ceremony of coffee table book ‘The Country That Lived- Fifty Years of Freedom and the Concert for Bangladesh’, said a press release.
“Bangabandhu was implementing various initiatives to build a science and technology- based Bangladesh and was planning various activities to achieve economic independence. As Bangabandhu was assassinated on 15 August, 1975, the path of science and technology in Bangladesh stopped for 21 long years,” Palak said.
“His worthy successor, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina after coming to power has implemented the unfinished work of Bangabandhu. After 43 years, she has fulfilled Bangabandhu’s unfinished dream of having our own satellite,” he added.
