Children are not burden but wealth: Indira

RAJSHAHI, Feb 8, 2020 (BSS)- Terming the children as a wealth not burden, State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Fazilatunnesa Indira today said their legitimate rights must be protected as a whole.

“The children should be built with proper care for flourishing their latent talent,” she added while addressing a cultural ceremony at Shishu Academy auditorium here as chief guest.

On the occasion, she distributed educational accessories among the children of Shishu Bikash Kendra.

Chaired by Deputy Commissioner Hamidul Haque, the meeting was addressed, among others, by Advocate Adiba Anjum Mita, MP, Additional Secretary to the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs Farida Parveen, Deputy Secretary Ferdousi Begum and District Children Affairs Officer Monzur Kadir.

The state minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasin’s government has planned various need-based programmes to transform the children into worthy citizens.

She urged all concerned to make the programmes a total success through discharging their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty.

She also stressed the need for cultural practices side by side with their academic activities both for physical and mental development of the children.

Indira urged the district administration to arrange programmes on values and the War of Liberation for the students at schools to mark the ‘Mujib Barsha 2020’, birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujubur Rahman.
