Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday emphasized a social movement against drugs like one against militancy with a view to root out drug addiction from the country.
She said, "There was a social movement against militancy; like that we want another social movement against drugs."
The premier said this at a video conference arranged to inaugurate four amphibian dredgers, Gajaria-Munshiganj ferry terminal and ferry service, four container carrier vessels and two mini utility ferries from her Ganobhaban residence, reports UNB.
Sheikh Hasina said her government does not want the future of the country's children to get ruined. "We don't want to see someone to become terrorist and drug addict."
She said the government wants every child to be the worthy citizen of the country and work for its development.
"They'll build themselves in a planned way, they'll build a prosperous life, and that's our aim. That's why the government wants to eliminate terrorism and militancy from the country and root out drug addiction as well. So, there's a need to create a social movement...everyone should remain alert," she said.
Hasina urged all the guardians, teachers, imams and religious clerics to remain vigil.
The government wants to build the country beautifully where the future of every child will be brighter and all will be able to flourish their merits and devote themselves to nation-building activities.
"There'll be a technology knowledge-based nation...that's our aim," she said.
