100 of the prime minister’s speeches, between 2014 and October 2017 had been curated for the collection

A compilation of 100 of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s speeches has been compiled into a supplementary book—and added to the syllabi of schools, colleges, and universities, according to a recent directive signed by Assistant Director of the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) Shakhawat Hossain Biswas (Intermediate-1).

After receiving instructions from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on May 8, DSHE sent out its own directive on June 26.

The directive stated that 100 of the prime minister’s speeches, between 2014 and October 2017, on topics such as: agriculture, industry, education, infrastructure improvements, and women’s empowerment, had been curated for the collection. The book would give readers a taste of her strong and dynamic leadership—and a sense of the development the country has enjoyed as a result.

The roughly 550-page book has been published by Genius Publication and will be used in all government and non-government schools, colleges, and universities as a reference or supplementary text.
