Dhaka, Aug 5 (UNB) - Industries Minister Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun called upon the close associates of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman family members, including Sheikh Kamal, to come forward to share their ideas accurately to the new generations.
"It’s not needed to tell untruth about the family. Tell the truth to the new generations so that they can know the real incidents as many people are spreading false and baseless information to the new generation to divert them," the minister said this while recalling Sheikh Kamal's 70th birth anniversary programme titled “Bohumatrik Sheikh Kamal” at the Jatiya Press Club in the capital on Monday.
Bangladesh is a potential country and many foreign countries are coming to invest here. The country will continue to march forward with its pace of development, the minister hoped adding that “so it will not be easy to hatch conspiracy”.

to Sheikh Kamal in a playground as I was captain in the sports too,"

Major General (retd) Sayed Ahmed described Kamal as a hard-working person saying, "Kamal used to come to my mess whenever he gets time. We would further develop our relationship if he would live till now," he added.
