Joy making silent revolution in ICT: Quader

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said Prime Minister's ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has been making silent revolution in the field of Information and Communication Technology.

"Talented and meritorious persons should join politics to raise its standard. Those who do not understand the people's pulse, politics is not suitable for them," he told the inaugural function of "ICT Career Camp 2016" at Haji Idris auditorium of Noakhali Science and Technology University (NSTU).

Quader hoped that Joy, who spearheads the "Digital Bangladesh" campaign, will be their future leader.

He called upon the party leaders and workers and common people to remain alert as communal extremism has increased in the country and the extremists can launch any incident in anytime.

The Awami League general secretary urged the students to get prepared to lead the country in future along with their regular studies.

"Drug addiction destroys the young generation gradually. So, strong social campaign should be waged against drug abuse," he said.

The minister called upon the teachers not to engage themselves and their students with politics.

State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak, local lawmakers Morshed Alam and Ayesha Ferdous, District AL President Principal Khairul Anam Selim and Deputy Commissioner Badare Munir Ferdous, among others, addressed the function.

NSTU Vice-Chancellor Professor M Wahiduzzaman presided over it.
