Chumki for proper nursing of girl children

State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Meher Afroze Chumki yesterday said it is impossible to build a developed country showing negligence to the girls as children are the biggest resources for the country, reports BSS.

“Children are the biggest resources of the country. About two crore of the total population are children in Bangladesh while most of them are girls.
