We will ensure Smart Bangladesh by 2041: Land Minister


Land Minister Narayan Chandra Chand said, we will ensure Smart Bangladesh by 2041 by building a knowledge-based society with the collective efforts of all, regardless of caste and religion. Through the implementation of Smart Bangladesh, we will be able to build the ‘Golden Bangla’ of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s dream.

He said these things during the Saraswati Puja ceremony organized by the ‘Agargaon Administrative Area Puja Udyapan Parishad’ at the Government Music College premises in Agargaon, Dhaka on Wednesday.

Land Minister said, Bangladesh is a country of communal harmony. Saraswati Puja, one of the most universal religious festivals, is attended by all irrespective of religion, caste and community, adding a different dimension to the non-communal spirit and tradition of this country.

He hoped that Saraswati Puja would become a festival and strengthen this noble tradition of harmony.

Then, on the occasion of Saraswati Puja, the Minister of Lands unveiled the ‘Jyotirmoy’ published by ‘Agargaon Administrative Area Puja Udyapan Parishad’ and inaugurated the organisation’s website https://pujaupa.org/.
