Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said the aim of her government is to steer the country towards prosperity as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, reports UNB. "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.

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."

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.
