Intensify scout movement to make ideal citizens: President


PV Desk : President M Abdul Hamid today asked all concerned to expand the activities of the scout movement at grassroots level to make children, teenagers and youths ideal and worthy citizens.

“Scouting can play a very significant role in grooming new generation as a modern, progressive and creative nation” coping with the worldwide competition, he said while addressing the 46th Annual General Meeting of the national council of Bangladesh Scouts at Osmani Memorial Auditorium here.

The President said scout movement is playing a very conducive role to build up children, teenagers and youths as self-reliant, patriot, self-confidence and good citizens which would help turn Bangladesh into a “Sonar Bangla”, as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Stressing the need for expanding the welfare activities of scouts, Abdul Hamid said, “We have to make the scouting activities more visible and popular everywhere being imbued with the spirit of War of Liberation and upholding country’s actual history.”
