PM urges social cohesion for development
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said peace and security at all level of the society is the most important prerequisite for Bangladesh's development. She urged everyone to put in their efforts to establish peace and security in the society. The prime minister said one day Bangladesh would emerge as a developed country as its independence, which was earned at the cost of huge blood, cannot go in vein. She made the statement while addressing a function at her Gonobhaban residence in Dhaka on Sunday. The prime minister said hundred percent literacy is required to build poverty and hunger free Bangladesh. Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid handed over a summary of the results to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her Gonobhaban residence this morning. Later, chairmen of ten education boards handed over the result of their respective board to the prime minister. A total of 77.77% students passed in this year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and its equivalent examinations, which is 2.58% less than last year. State Minister for Madrasa and Technical Education Department Kazi Keramat Ali also spoke on the occasion. Principal Secretary Md Nazibur Rahman conducted the program which was connected with Barisal and Bandar district through video conference. A total of 2,026,514 students from 28,558 educational institutions under 10 educational boards appeared in this year's SSC and equivalent examinations. Out of them, 1,574,104 students became successful with 110,629 obtaining GPA-5. In the SSC examination held under eight education boards 79.40% students came out successfully while the pass rate in the Madrasa Education Board is 70.89% and 71.96% in the Technical Education Board. The SSC and equivalent examinations were held from February 1 to Mar 4 this year. Pointing out the steps taken to give support to education sector, Sheikh Hasina said the government is giving scholarship to the students up to post graduate level so that they can pursue their studies. While talking to the students and officials of Bandarban and Barisal districts through video conference, she said her government has a plan to build more residential schools in remote areas of Bangladesh and Chittagong Hill Tracts. "Despite substantial improvement of overall communications system across the country, remote areas still need more residential schools to facilitate the students so that they can pursue their studies perfectly," she said. The prime minister urged the officials introduce mid day meal in all schools.
