Getting the appointment letter, Mukta said, "I got my job because of the sympathy of State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak. I am grateful to him."
Palak said, "We are providing assistance in various ways including training from the ICT department so that the talented youth of the country do not get frustrated and can move forward with confidence. He said no educated youth will be unemployed in Bangladesh if proper education is taken."
