Bangladesh is digital and developing country: Mustafa Jabbar


NETRAKONA, March 30, 2018 (BSS) – The Post, Telecommunication and ICT minister Mustafa Jabbar said that Bangladesh has turned into a digital and developing country under dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Highlighting tremendous successes achieved by the present government in the ICT sector, the minister said that now the internet service network is available and the common people can easily exchange their views and information through social media including Facebook.

Mustafa Jabber was exchanging views with local journalists at Netrakona press club here last night.

Chaired by Deputy Commissioner of Netrakona and also the ex-officio president of the press club Main-UL-Islam, the views-exchanging meeting was addressed, among others, by president of Awami League (AL) Netrakona district unit Motiur Rahman Khan, general secretary of AL Netrakona district unit Ashraf Ali Khan Khasru, vice president of the press club Haider Jahan Chowdhory and general secretary of the press club Shaymolendu Paul.

Referring different barriers faced by the journalists for sending news or photos to their medias due to lack of internet service or digital instruments during the BNP regimes, Mustafa Jabbar said “at that time it was impossible for the journalists to send report or photo to their media due to absence of internet service and digital instruments.”

“But, now the journalists are getting wider opportunities for sending news or photos and telecasting live TV programs using the internet services and computers”, he added.
