Work diligently to maintain the nation’s development drive

On Monday, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged new Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) cadre officers to continue the nation’s 14-year-old development drive with patriotism and honesty.

The shift in progress we have achieved in the nation over the last 14 years cannot be hindered in any manner, she remarked, therefore “you (BCS officers) should work sincerely.”

At the BCS Administration Academy in Shahbagh on Monday morning, the premier was speaking at the certificate-giving and closing ceremony for the 127th, 128th, and 129th Law and Administration Training Courses for BCS admin cadres.

She asked the brand-new policemen to picture Bangladesh 14 years ago.

Between 2009 and 2023, how much has Bangladesh evolved in terms of infrastructure building, food production, education, and the use of digital systems, among other things? Bangladesh has advanced significantly, she said.

The new officials were instructed to work with patriotism and commitment to sustain the present development frenzy by the prime minister as well.

In reference to the killing of the Father of the Nation and the majority of his family on August 15, 1975, she said that Bangladesh had been making progress toward socioeconomic development at the time, with over 9% GDP growth and stability.

She said that the defeated force of 1971 is once again planning a plot to move the nation backward.

She also urged the new officials to speed up uplift projects to ensure the country’s general growth as it became a nation free of hunger and poverty, as intended by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of the Nation.

According to article 21(2) of the Constitution, the government personnel must always serve the people, the premier said. Therefore, I want you (the new officials) to serve the people.

She said that she followed in the footsteps of her father, Bangabandhu, by becoming the prime minister of Bangladesh.

“I don’t consider myself to be a prime minister. I see myself as the people’s servant. Serving them is the only obligation I have, added Sheikh Hasina.

She urged the brand-new policemen to go to the people’s homes and act as their servants in order to safeguard their wellbeing.

At the event, the prime minister also presented the covers for three different mementos, Joy Bangla (127th), Rangin Bangladesh (128th), and Elated Bangladesh (129th), as well as a study paper that was conducted under the direction of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

Farhad Hossain, the State Minister for Public Administration, Mohammed Mezbah Uddin Chowdhury, the Senior Secretary of the Ministry, and Mominur Rashid Amin, the Rector of the BCS Administration Academy all spoke at the event.

Additionally, a film documentary on the BCS Administration Academy was shown.

Sheikh Hasina urged BCS employees to act honestly so that regular people might get justice and avoid societal ills.

“Make sure that individuals can free themselves of narcotics, militancy, terrorism, and corruption since these dangers wreak havoc on families, society, and the nation. You need to keep an eye on things, she said.

Additionally, she requested that waste be stopped since the global economy is in a slump.

“Given our financial situation, we must sustain austerity. To preserve our current economic development, we must utilize our resources as effectively as possible, she stated.

The premier referred to the new officers as the soldiers of 2041 and hoped that they would accept the duty of making Bangladesh a developed and successful nation by that year.

She said that, since taking power in 2009, the administration has worked tirelessly for 14 years to put the nation in a decent position.

She reminded her compatriots that from 1975 to 1996 and from 2001 to 2008, Bangladesh’s rapid progress was entirely halted.

The officers were also urged by the prime minister to uphold integrity and a love for the nation and its citizens at all times.

She added, “You must always act with integrity, self-assurance, and decency; you must love your country and its people; and you must work for the welfare of the nation’s citizens.”

Public employees, according to Sheikh Hasina, must remember that their pay comes from the purses of the nation’s farmers, laborers, and working class citizens.

“All of our wages and benefits are paid for by the nation’s citizens in exchange for their laborious labor. So everyone has a responsibility to alter their circumstances. You must always keep this issue in mind, she said.

She also advised the new recruits that helping others should be their first priority.

She called upon the freshers to know the true history of the Liberation War or how much struggle and sacrifice Bangabandhu endured for achieving the country’s independence, by reading the AusamaptaAtmajiboni (The Unfinished Memoirs: Sheikh Mujibur Rahman), KaragarerRojnamcha (The Prison Diaries), Amar DekhaNaya Chin (The New China as I Saw), and the volumes of books on the Pakistani intelligence reports against Bangabandhu since 1948.

The prime minister outlined the different steps her administration has made to ensure the general growth of the nation, stating that their (the government’s) major objective is to alter the destiny of the people by improving their lives and means of subsistence.

She said that as part of the effort to improve people’s lives, her administration has adopted the Ashrayan project, which aims to offer homes to all landless and homeless people in celebration of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s 100th birthday.

The prime minister expressed his gratitude to the government officials for their earnest efforts in conducting the nationwide housing project and immunization campaign as well as providing unwavering assistance to the afflicted citizens amid the continuing Covid-19 epidemic.

She urged her people once again to cultivate every square foot of fertile land so that Bangladesh wouldn’t have a food crisis.
