“I again urge you to send your sons and daughters to school because educated youth are the best investment for a bright tomorrow of our country,” he noted. Though the country achieved milestone in education during the last 13 years, he claimed, adding the nation needed to do more in education sector.
He said that our elders and leading people were though being killed in the country on one hand while on the other “we have a strong youth power to deal with the challenges.”

He also stressed on government to focus on the safe release of 30 kidnapped passengers. “Let’s tell terrorists unequivocally that what you’re doing is against humanity and human rights and the history will pour scorn on you (terrorists).”
