“All members of Bangladesh Scouts should get modern trainings, including those in information technology (IT), so that they can take effective steps at the time of any need of the country and the nation,” he told the function.

The Head of State urged the scouts to play roles in keeping the country free from corruption, militancy, communalism and drug abuse.

The President, also the chief scout, was administered the scout-oath and awarded a distinctive scouts badge by Chief National Commissioner Md Mozammel Haque Khan.

Bangladesh Scouts president Md Abul Kalam Azad awarded a distinctive scout scarf to the chief scout in the ceremony where other scouts commissioners and Bangabhaban secretaries were also present.

Noting that ethics and morals are very important in imparting education in scout activities, the President said scouting can also play a positive role in creating the ideological foundation of boys and girls.

Leadership development at every level is very important to move the country forward on the path of development and progress and build a smart Bangladesh, he observed.
