'Yes' to computer!
From the very beginning, fortunately, our governments have realized the significance of computer in the present day world. So, till now policies regarding this sector are very positive. The nation is getting the benefit of this trend also. In an underdeveloped country like Bangladesh, within this short period, the expansion of the use of computer is relatively laudable.
The ruling party declared, in its election manifesto, that by 2021 they would like to convert this Bangladesh into 'Digital Bangladesh'. Thus, special favour to computer, Internet, and auxiliary instruments is expected. But recently, it was noticed that the cell phone operators have become very active to gain extra benefits from the position taken by the government. If the government becomes more attentive to serving the interest of the cell phone companies, automatically they will not be able to pay additional heed to computer related sectors.
Though companies have claimed that they will help to broaden the use of Internet through cell phones, actually to ensure the real use of Internet, computer is indispensable. Through cell phone we can check our mails, on the way, but to get the real benefits, of course you have to go to computer.
I will request to the policymakers to concentrate on the use of computers first, and then turn to the Internet.
