Develop sense of responsibility towards country: PM to BAF officers

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday  asked the newly-commissioned officers of Bangladesh Air Force to develop a sense of responsibility towards the country and its people to gain public trust and confidence.

“You will have to have a sense of responsibility towards the country, the motherland and its people,” she said.

The Prime Minister was addressing the President Parade (winter)-2022 of Bangladesh Air Force (BAF) Academy in Jashore.

 “Today's Air Force is much more powerful, modern and agile than it was in the past in terms of infrastructure, tactics and technology due to different measures taken by her government for the development of the force,” she said .

In the function, a total of 10 flight cadets received the flying badges from her for their successful completion of the basic flying training in PT-6 aircraft.

Besides, a flight cadet received the coveted Sword of Honour and Commandant’s Trophy, while two others received Birshreshtha Matiur Rahman Trophy and Chief of Air Staff Trophy for their best performances in different categories during the 81st BAFA course.

Sheikh Hasina said her government has taken various steps to increase the operational capacity of the air force after assuming power in 2009.

The steps include the induction of F-7 BGI fighter aircrafts, C-130J transport aircraft with the latest avionics, MI-171Sh helicopters, and maritime search and rescue helicopters in the fleet of the air force.

Sheikh Hasina said the members of the air force or the armed forces stand beside the people and serve them during the disasters -cyclone, flood— or accidents.

To gain public trust and confidence is the most important thing to win any war, she said.

“We don’t want war, rather want peace. We believe in the policy of friendship with all. Even then, we’ll have to maintain excellence from every aspect, getting training and to move with confidence,” she said.
