Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said that apart from education, the government is paying special attention to sports and cultural activities as part of its efforts to make children worthy citizens.
“The prime task of the government is to make the children worthy citizens. We’ve undertaken various programmes for that purpose,” she said while inaugurating the Sheikh Russel International Club Cup Tennis Tournament 2019 in Khulna from her official residence through video conference.
“We’ve given special attention so that the practice of various sports could take place in the country and we are working on that,” she added.
Sheikh Hasina said mini stadiums are being constructed in every upazila so that the youth could be involved in sports which will make them mentally strong and self-confident.
