Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday ordered for the promotion of army personnel considering their qualities such as patriotism, belief in the spirit of the Liberation War, leadership quality, professional efficiency, discipline, honesty, trustworthiness and loyalty. 
 
The Prime Minister ordered this while addressing the inaugural function of the Army Selection Board, 2019 as the chief guest at Dhaka Cantonment this morning.

The Prime Minister said the present government has taken a number of measures to rise the morale of the army personnel. She highlighted various activities of her government to develop the modern and up to date defense system. Sheikh Hasina also urges the army members to maintain their patriotism, integrity and loyalty. 

The Prime Minister hoped that the selection board will recommend the army officials for promotion considering their qualities such as patriotism, belief in the spirit of the Liberation War, leadership quality, professional efficiency, discipline, honesty, trustworthiness and loyalty.

She said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman formulated the Defence Policy 1974. In light of the policy, the present government has formulated the Forces Goal 2030 to build a strong armed force for the country.

Bangabandhu is the first person who had ruled the country after taking birth in this soil, she said, adding that the people who ruled the country earlier came from another land.

Sheikh Hasina, the eldest daughter of Bangabandhu, said her government will complete the unaccomplished works of the Father of the Nation.

The premier said the government has relentlessly been working to turn the country into a ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation by making Bangladesh a hunger- and poverty-free country where no one will remain hungry.

On her arrival at the venue, Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed received the Prime Minister.

PM’s Principal Secretary Md Nojibur Rahman, Defence Secretary Akhter Hussain Bhuiya and Principal Staff Officer of the Armed Forces Division Lt General Md Mahfuzur Rahman, among others, were present.
