Aim big to conquer the moon: PM tells children

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday asked the children of the country to take preparation from now on for conquering the moon.

"We will go to the moon one day. So, you have to take preparation to achieve that from now on," she said.

The prime minister made the remarks while opening the "Bangabandhu Corner" at Gimadanga Tungipara Government Model Primary School in Gopalganj.

At the same function, she also unveiled the cover of an album titled "Eso Bangabandhuke Jani" (Let's Know Bangabandhu) drawn by specially needed children at the school established in 1912.

The prime minister asked the students to study attentively so they could one day become prime minister, ministers, scientists, and noted personalities of the country.

"Study attentively to become great human beings. We will build Smart Bangladesh. You will be really smart. You will run the state one day. You will be prime minister, minister and scientist and going to greater places and doing research."

She said her prayer and blessing would be upon the children as they will attain success in their endeavour.

Sheikh Hasina, elder daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, said her father wanted to give the children a beautiful life.

About the album of pictures on the country's history drawn by the children with special needs, she said it will help them know the country's history.

She said her father never liked any luxury in his life, rather he chose to work to give people an improved and better life.

"He [Bangabandhu] had only one target and that was to free the people from poverty and give them an improved life," she said.
