Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday called upon the children to take preparation from now on to make them worthy so they can go to the moon in the future.

"We will go to the moon one day. So, you have to take preparation from this moment," she said while opening "Bangabandhu Corner" at Gimadanga Tungipara Government Model Primary School in Gopalganj, reports BSS.

She also unveiled the cover of a picture's album titled "Eso Bangabandhuke Jani" (Let's know Bangabandhu) drawn by the children with special needs at the school which was established in 1912.

The prime minister asked the students to study attentively as they can be prime minister, ministers, scientists and noted personalities of the country one day.

"Study attentively to be great human beings. We will build Smart Bangladesh. You will be really smart. You will run the state one day. You will be prime minister, minister and scientist and going to the greater places and doing researches," she said.

The premier said her prayers and blessings will be for the children as they can be successful in their endeavour.

Sheikh Hasina, the elder daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, said her father wanted to give the children a beautiful life.

About the album of the pictures on the country's history drawn by the children with special needs, she said it will help let know the country's history.

She said her father never preferred any luxury for his life rather he had done work for giving the people improved and better life.

"He (Bangabandhu) had only one target to get rid the people of the poverty and give them an improved life," she added.

Earlier, on her arrival at the school, the students welcomed her.
