President Mohammad Abdul Hamid today aksed the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) members to remain vigilant to prevent smuggling across the border.
He made the call while addressing the passing-out parade of the 94th recruit batch of the paramilitary forces as they wrapped up their 24-week training in Chattogram on Monday.
Abdul Hamid said that along with the rigor of your character, human qualities have to be developed. You have to do your duty properly from above your greed.
In addition to the needs of the country and the nation, the President advised the new members of the BGB to engage in public welfare work in the future.
The head of the state recalled that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman himself attended the border guards third passing-out par de on December 05 in 1974, when he “directed you to work against cross-border trafficking and smuggling”.
“We must remember that smugglers have no caste, no religion and they aren’t human beings as well . . . They siphon off country’s wealth abroad for a little money,” the President quoted Bangabandhu as saying at that function.
President Hamid advised the BGB fresher to work relentlessly with honesty, integrity and showing utmost professionalism to enhance their reputation as watchdogs of the frontier.
He said female soldiers in other forces were performing well and appreciated BGB decision for inducting women, expecting them to prove their efficiency and worth as well.
BGB has long 200-year rich history and heritages, Abdul Hamid mentioned, adding that this force has been serving the motherland since the 1971 Liberation War in many ways.
He said the force stood by people during any crisis like natural disasters and worked together with common people.
On his arrival at the parade venue, BGB Director General Major General Md Shafeenul Islam welcomed the President, also the commander-in-chief of the armed force.
On the occasion, an attractive parade was arranged at Bir Uttam Mujibur Rahman Parade Ground.
The President took salute, inspected the parade by riding on an open jeep. BGB Chief Major General Md Shafeenul Islam and Commandant of BGTC and C Brigadier General Omar Zahid accompanied him there.
A total of 544, including 49 female new recruits, imparted a 24-week training in the 94th batch which began on September 15 last year.
