Posts and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar said that the Vijay Keyboard software on Android phones is not mandatory for users.

He said this to reporters at Osmani Memorial Auditorium in the capital on Wednesday afternoon.

Today was the second day of the three-day DC conference. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the conference at the Shapla Hall of the Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday.

Mustafa Jabbar spoke to reporters after the dialogue with the DCs in the second session of the second day. In response to the journalist’s question, the minister said, I will give an explanation, that is, BTRC has used a word – mandatory. This term is misleading.

He said, on any Android phone you can keep any software, uninstall it, throw it away, install it again. Therefore there is no need to apply mandatory words. It is not mandatory.

He said by questioning, for whom it is mandatory? That said, the manufacturer or importer will provide a software to facilitate Bengali writing. Whether the user uses the software or not is entirely at his discretion.

Telecommunication Minister said, we have spread 4G services in more than 98 percent of the country. Now we are working with 5G. 5G is 10 times more powerful than 4G.

He said, we have more than 10 crore mobile internet subscribers, and some fixed internet subscribers too. We should give more importance to mobile internet. But we are not able to install towers in different parts of the country. Some people spread the propaganda that the tower is emitting radiation. We have tested and found that these are propaganda. We have to let the tower be installed.

The minister also said that India’s network comes in Banglabandha, we cannot provide it. Trying to place the tower. But due to restrictions in neighboring India, we cannot. But we keep trying. We can’t install towers even on Myanmar border. The network also comes to them. But our network runs less in border areas.

He said, Teletalk is a government institution. As many comments as I have received on this during my ministry, other issues are not talked about as much. I don’t know why, even though there is a network, people say Teletalk doesn’t have a network.
