Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Thursday said Bangladesh is moving forward at an indomitable pace under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

 “Due to the skilled and visionary leadership of the prime minister, the country has now become a role model of development in the world. Today, it is recognised globally,” he said while taking part in general discussion in the House, marking the golden jubilee of the country’s independence, reports BSS.

Hasan, also the Awami League joint general secretary, said US President Joe Biden, in his message sent on the occasion of Mujib Year, mentioned Bangladesh as an example of development in the world.

Besides, he said, the World Bank president termed Bangladesh a role model of development.

Leader of the House and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday brought a motion under the parliamentary rules of procedure 147 to hold a general discussion on the golden jubilee of the country’s independence.

Hasan took part in the discussion on the motion.

 “We have been working to build a developed and prosperous Bangladesh that sets an example of intellectual thoughts and humanity,” he said.

That is why a generation having intellect, thoughts, human values and modern knowledge must be built, the information minister said, adding that the government is working towards achieving this goal under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

Referring to the development and progress that took place in the country in the last 13 years, he said Bangladesh today is far ahead of all other countries in the South Asia, including Pakistan, in development and social indicators.

Even, Bangladesh has surpassed Pakistan in all the socioeconomic indexes, he added.

Noting that Bangladesh was never independent before 1971, Hasan said the first “nation-state of Bangalees” was established only under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Quoting a statement of communist leader Moni Singh issued on the occasion of the 53rd birthday of Bangabandhu in 1972, he said: “Moni Singh said Bangabandhu in a letter in 1951 informed him that he (Bangabandhu) was going ahead with the plan for independence of East Bengal.”

However, the information minister said, the poet of politics Bangabandhu continued to prepare the nation for independence in phases.
