Bangabandhu-1 satellite is not a person owned : PM
Banglapress, Dhaka: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that the ownership of the Bangabandhu-1 satellite is not a person. It’s the government. He said preparations for preparation of Bangabandhu-2 satellite has been started. ‘The life of a satellite is 15 years. It takes 5/6 years to create a satellite. That’s why preparing to prepare Bangabandhu-2 from now on. We have started working on keeping in mind that another can be started for a while. ‘
In reply to the supplementary questions of parliament member Rustam Ali Fazi, on Wednesday (June 6th) in the question-answer session, he told this information. Speaker Dr. In the chairmanship of Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury, the Prime Minister’s question-answer session was held in the beginning of the meeting.
The Prime Minister said, “If the second satellite time is over, we will create Bangabandhu-3. In this way we will continue our continuity. ‘
Sheikh Hasina said, “We want to keep pace with the era. When we come to the technology that we can study, hold and use the system we will take. Let’s look at the new era in the future. Whenever we will be modern and timid, we will be thinking.
Responding to Fazilatunnesa Bappi’s supplementary questions on the BNP’s allegation on the satellite, the Prime Minister said, “All the Bengali enthusiasm of the country and abroad is overwhelmed by satellite launch.” All eyes tears in eyes When all people are so happy, why is BNP so sad? Many countries of the world have launched satellites long ago. Why did not we?
Regarding BNP’s allegation of satellite ownership, she said, “The ownership of the satellite must be of Bangladesh. The way the government is owned by other organizations, we have become its owner. However, in the case of using it, the person who owns the same will own it. Two people can not own it. It is also shameful to make such comments. It has 40 transponders. In the meantime, Bangladesh will need 20. The rest 20 we can rent to different countries including SAARC countries. Here I do not understand how two people owned. If there is love for people and country people of any country and believe in freedom, then such comments can not be made. Two people have been hired to use Satellite DTH (Direct Television to Home) technology. It is not understandable whether the BNP has understood the two owners. Such speech is not acceptable to the people like Orbacin. It implies that they love people. So, how will they improve the country’s progress? ‘
Commenting on the notion of BNP’s technology, he said, “Their thoughts are so narrow that when the submarine cable comes in the region, it is not free, but they did not take it as the BNP government would be transferring information. We were disconnected from this world by saying this. I do not know what the secret information contained in the BNP wants to keep the collective. ‘
He said, “From the bottom of the ocean to the space we improved the dignity of the country. I want to pray for the people so that the progress continues.
Responding to the question of Jatiya Party MP Fakhrul Imam about getting the benefit of satellite, he said the satellite had already reached its orbit. Started to give signals. Once you start working, there will be no problem. There is no doubt about it. There is no need to worry about this. And I will say this, the saying is not hidden or secret. ‘
