Good communication network keeps wheels of economy rolling: PM

BSS, Dhaka
Good communication network keeps wheels of economy rolling: PM

Referring to the country’s constitution that the nation got from the Father of the Nation, Sheikh Hasina said it clearly tells about the development of country’s people and realizing their (people) basic needs – food, clothe, shelter, treatment and education.

“Therefore, whenever I came in government, we undertook different development plans and the country’s people are now getting the benefits of those,” she added.

The prime minister recalled the contribution of Father of the Nation with due respect, saying that Bangabandhu brought independence for the country and wanted to change the fate of the people and eradicate poverty.

“The Father of the Nation wanted to ensure people’s basic necessities. Since his school life, he tried to do something for the people and improve their lives by enduring jail, repression and torture.

And lastly, he had to make the supreme sacrifice along with his family members,” she mentioned in an emotion chocked voice.

“After losing my parents and brothers, I returned to Bangladesh empty-handed with a motto to fulfill the desire of Father of the Nation to build a hunger- and poverty-free, and developed ‘Sonar Bangla’ (golden Bangladesh) ” Sheikh Hasina said.

The prime minister said that she was forced to spend six years in exile after 1975 and later returned to the country in 1981 when she was made the president of the Awami League.

In fact, Bangladesh was in darkness after ’75, Sheikh Hasina said, adding that after the Awami League came to power in 1996, there was a hope of light but later “we could not come to power due to a conspiracy and the country plunged into darkness, injustice, oppression and torture again. People of Bangladesh had to lose more eight years.”

“I am grateful to the people of Bangladesh for repeatedly giving us the opportunity to serve the country and work for them,” PM Hasina added.

During her speech, the premier recalled with due respect the contribution of renowned freedom fighter Rafiqul Islam Bakul of Pabna, saying that he was one of the few who stood by the party as well as her and faced the adversities during the BNP regime.

“We must remember his contribution because he is a freedom fighter,” she said, thanking all concerned, including Anjan Chowdhury, for constructing this ‘Independence Square”.

Inaugurating the bridges over the three rivers, the prime minister said, these three bridges are the gifts of “Mujib Bosrho (Mujib Year)”, the birth centenary celebration of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, for the inhabitants of Mohammadpur, Rupganj and Abhaynagar.

The prime minister reiterated the seriousness of the probable second wave of coronavirus pandemic and emphasized on the use of masks and urged all to abide by the health rules.
