Agriculture Minister M Abdur Razzaque handed over the awards on behalf of the Prime Minister

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday awarded the prestigious Bangabandhu Jatiya Krishi Puroshkar, the highest state recognition for achievements in the agriculture sector, to 32 individuals and organizations.

Of them, five received gold medals, nine silver medals and 18 bronze medals for their outstanding contribution to different fields in agriculture.

This year’s award recognized the recipients' special contribution to agriculture research and expansion, cooperatives motivation, technology innovation, commercial farming, afforestation, rearing livestock and poultry and fish farming.

Agriculture Minister M Abdur Razzaque, who is also the chairman of Bangabandhu Krishi Puroshkar Trust, handed over the awards on behalf of the prime minister at the award-giving ceremony at Osmani Memorial Auditorium in Dhaka.

The prime minister joined it virtually from her official residence, Ganabhaban.

In 1973, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had introduced the award to take forward the agro-based economy of the newly independent Bangladesh.

After Bangabandhu's assassination in 1975, the subsequent government stopped the award.

But after assuming office in 2009, the Awami League government formulated "The Bangabandhu Jatiya Krishi Purashkar Tahabil Ain-2009," giving institutional shape to the award.

The Bangabandhu Jatiya Krishi Purashkar Trust Law 2016 was enacted to make the activities more dynamic.
