Govt working to steer Bangladesh towards prosperity: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the aim of her government is to steer the country towards prosperity as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

"We’ve to change the fate of people living in remote areas of the country which was the dream of the Father of the Nation. That is our target.

We’re putting in our best efforts to achieve the target," she said.

The Prime Minister said this while inaugurating 33 development projects in 20 districts across the country through videoconferencing from her official residence Ganobhaban.

She opened seven newly constructed bridges, one jetty, Extended Administration Bhabans and Hall Rooms of nine Upazila Parishad Complexes, six newly constructed Nagar Matrisadon (Maternity clinics) Bhabans, and ten Nagar Healthcare Centre.

Sheikh Hasina said the government as per its election manifesto launched the charter of change after returning to power through the 2008 general election. "We’ve changed the living standard of people in the last 10 years…we’ve started the journey for change, and we’re moving towards prosperity."

She mentioned that the aim of the government is to make the country developed and prosperous one with eradicating poverty. "We’ve achieved tremendous success to that end.”

The Prime Minister mentioned that the government has taken steps so that people could lead a good life. "We’re continuing our efforts for changing the fate of people."

After assuming power in 1996, she said, the AL government always tried to materialise the dream of the Father of the Nation to bring smile to the faces of people and change their living standard.

She recalled the horrible days the BNP-Jamaat regime from 2001-2006 when there were widespread killings, corruption and militant acts.

In 2008, she said, the people of the country voted Awami League to power again and just after forming the government it took numerous projects for the country’s sustainable development.

"As a result, Bangladesh gained socioeconomic status and recognition from the world as a developing country," she said.

Local Government and Rural Development & Co-operatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain also spoke at the programme.

Later, the Prime Minister talked to cross-section of people of eight districts through the videoconference.UNB
