Member of Parliament of Rajshahi-3 (Paba-Mohanpur) Ayan Uddin said, ‘To build a smart Bangladesh, we have to build a humane state. We must not only be a developed country, but a humane country. Not just education, good education should be given. They should be developed as good citizens. He said these things while addressing the Chief Guest at the National Primary Education Week discussion meeting organized by Upazila Administration and Upazila Education Office at Upazila Parishad Hall on Monday (March 13). Member of Parliament Ayen Uddin said, previously 5 to 7 out of 50 female students used to come to school. Not like that now. Now the number of girls coming to school has increased. Now the number of female teachers in primary schools is also very high in many upazilas including Paba upazila. This is also an awakening of women’s education. He said that if we cannot create awareness in all aspects including education, then there will be no smart Bangladesh. In addition to moral education, you must give moral education, humanitarian education and environmental education to those who are head teachers – encouragement to grow. If they get that education or if that skill can be learned by my new generation, future generation boys and girls, our state will be established on the map of the world as a smart state.
