Faridpur Correspondent: Awami League (AL) President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said the country didn’t see any development during the regimes of illegal power grabbers who seized power violating the constitution with the strength of arms.
Seeking vote for her party’s election symbol ‘boat’, he reiterated that the country’s people witness development when boat remains in power.
“Bangladesh witnessed no development when the violators of the constitution were in power through arms. There has been development only when Awami League came to power,” she said, addressing a mammoth election rally at the Government Rajendra College field here this afternoon.
Sheikh Hasina said ‘boat’ is the symbol of Prophet Nuh that saved the human race during the Great Flood, adding this boat in which “you people got your independence and developed your living standard”.
She said, “if only boat is there (in power), people of Bangladesh will stay well and in peace.”
“Will you cast your votes for boat? Promise me, please raise your hands,” she urged the people and they rally raised their hands and chanted slogans for boat.
The Awami League chief said that conspiracy of anti-Bangladesh forces did not stopped yet, rather it has been intensified.
“There’re so many conspiracies. Those who didn’t support during our liberation war, their conspiracies did not stop yet,” she said, adding, as the conspirators know that Bangladesh never bow down to any one, their conspiracies are huge.
“I’m the daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, I never bow down to anyone and will never do that,” she said.
Sheikh Hasina said that although the Awami League government already has done massive development works across the country, it has more works to do.
“We need to build up ourselves as a developing country. For that whom do you need? Just tell me,” She asked the audience.
She said that Bangladesh will be a developing country.
“Only the boat symbol… if boat gets votes… if only boat gets votes, I will be able to come in power again and it will be possible to build Bangladesh as a developing country,” she said.
