BSS, Kishoreganj :

President M Abdul Hamid on Monday urged all, irrespective of party affiliations and opinions, to attach priority to the national interest to speed up country's development and progress.
"All have to give attention that no person or quarter or any party interest would hamper the national interest," he told a function at Bajitpur College here on the occasion of its golden jubilee celebration.
Referring to different political ideologies, the President said as part of democratic practices, there might be different beliefs and thoughts or followers of different political parties but everybody must have one and same aim to ensure welfare of the country and its people.
"Stability is very conducive to the development . . . Social, political and economic stability speeds up country's progress while instability hampers the growth," Abdul Hamid observed.
The President stressed the need for combating corruption from all spheres of the society and implementing the spirit of Liberation War to fulfill the hopes and aspirations of common people.
"You have to hate corruption heart and soul and remove corrupt practices from the society," Hamid suggested. Terming the students as the immensely potential asset of a country, he said they must build themselves world-class to face the challenges of this competitive millennium.
He asked the students to come out from the old-thinking and enrich themselves with time-befitting ideas or notions. "Students will have to work in the society as pinion-builders", President Hamid added.
He also called upon students to materialize the dream of Father of Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who wanted the people's economic emancipation beside the political independence. His daughter Sheikh Hasina is working relentlessly, the President said, to ensure the socio-economic development of the country and the development strategy of the present government got worldwide appreciation.
Recalling his political background, Abdul Hamid said, "Memories still haunt me like passion. I started my political career as a student of Gurudayal College in 1961. Since then I got your heartfelt supports and you made me parliament member all times."
He said, "In my long political career, I never compromised with evil forces and was always strict to the principle. I want to spend rest of my life for the welfare of mass people as I have nothing more to get in my life."
