After books, now laptops: Joy04 May 2015 bdnews24.com
The prime minister's son and her ICT adviser Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed Joy has distributed laptops to over 200 university students in an effort to' develop manpower with ICT skills.'
"It's the Awami League-led government which started to distribute free books and today it started to give laptops to students of Bangladesh," he told a gathering at Bangladesh Computer Council on Sunday.
The government will give 500 free laptops to students in the first phase under its 'One Student One Laptop' scheme of the ICT Ministry.
"I dream of building IT parks and creating an IT workforce in this country. Mark Zuckerberg developed 'Facebook', when he was only 19 years old. I hope that in future some of you will come up with things like Facebook and Google," said Joy.
