Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy made a call to a group of youths at Youth on Politics, a session of “Young Bangla with Sajeeb Wazed”, an event organised by the Centre for Research and Information (CRI) at Radisson blu hotel.

In reference to the contributions of young achievers and entrepreneurs of the country Joy said “I feel proud of our youths-instead of only banking on public jobs, the way they have stepped in, with tenacity and dedication, to fight out the social vices is really worth mentionable”.

He also called upon the guardians to allow their children to make their own career plan so that they can learn to stand on their own feet.

“I urge the guardians to let their children stand on their own feet, you don’t need to get everything done for them,” he said while addressing an interactive that event on Tuesday.

Joy said that there were cases where a youth of 25-26 years even did not know how to open a bank account which was very unfortunate and added, “Let (youths) them make mistakes. Let them (youths) learn from their own mistakes”.

The prime minister’s ICT affairs advisor highlighted the possibilities of the IT sector as the government is focusing on its “Digital Bangladesh” initiative.

“Please don’t focus only on getting jobs. Our economy is expanding. Become entrepreneurs and stand on your own feet,” Joy said.

“Don’t depend on others, the government or any organisation or company,” said the premier’s adviser.

Leading youth platform-Young Bangla-under CRI arranged the function, moderated by Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Barrister Shah Ali Farhad.

As many as 250 youths associated with Young Bangla, the country’s largest youth network, joined the event and many took up this opportunity to raise a host of issues before him.

With the motto “Connecting the Dots”, Young Bangla has become a launching pad for thousands of individuals and youth-led organizations, supporting them with resources, capacity enhancement trainings and encouragement, so that they can add all their game-changing ideas to the welfare of the nation.

Launched in 2014, the platform has opened up a number of initiatives for the youths, drawing over 500000 youths and more than 300 organizations from different parts of the country.
