Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sought blessings of her countrymen on her 74th birthday, and asked for their cooperation to move the country forward.

“I wish to keep serving the people of Bangladesh as long as I can. I also wish to live with dignity as long as I live,” she said.

The premier made the remarks at the opening speech of the cabinet meeting on Monday morning. She presided over the meeting virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban while other ministers and secretaries joined the meeting from the secretariat.

Sheikh Hasina, the eldest daughter of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, said: “I am trying my best to build this country as the ‘sonar bangla’ that was envisioned by the father of the nation.”

“I am working to make sure that the people of Bangladesh are proud and can live with their heads held high.”

Sheikh Hasina said she found it very difficult to deal with the loss of her family members. But wanting to fulfill her father’s unrealized dreams for the country was what kept her going in difficult moments.

“With everyone’s cooperation, we will take Bangladesh forward. Coronavirus has set us back somewhat. But the people of Bangladesh have the capacity to overcome any obstacle and I am confident that the country will rebound strongly from the pandemic. I feel very grateful to be a part of that people,” said the prime minister.
