Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday urged the people to keep the country free from BNP and Jamaat to continue the ongoing development spree of Bangladesh.

"BNP is not a political party rather a terrorist one, while Jamaat is a party of war criminals. The country has to be kept away from both BNP and Jamaat because of keeping the ongoing development of Bangladesh running," she said.

The Awami League chief made the call while addressing a public rally organized by Awami League as part of its campaign of the 12th national parliamentary election in six districts.

She also opined that the development trend will be continued only when there is a free and fair election, saying: "In the election, the people will elect their preferred candidate through casting their vote, and the development of the country will be kept rolling."

In this regard, the premier made her appeal to the country's people to uphold the democratic trend of Bangladesh alongside the development spree in the election.

As a developing nation, Bangladesh has to be built as a developed and prosperous country further, she added.

She joined the rally virtually at the Public Library field in Kushtia, Wazir Ali School and College Field in Jhenaidah, Satkhira Government High School in Satkhira, Zilla Stadium in Netrokona, and Sheikh Russell Stadium in Rangamati district as well as Bamna and Patharghata upazilas in Barguna districts from Bangladesh Awami League Office.

Referring to her government's announcement of turning Bangladesh into a smart country by 2041, the prime minister said that in the smart Bangladesh, each citizen will be educated with modern-scientific and technology-based education.

In addition, the population will be smart, the government will be smart, the economy will be smart and all trade and business will be smart there, she said, adding "We will go ahead keeping pace with the world with a high head."

Reiterating her determination not to allow anyone to play ducks and drakes with the fate of people of Bangladesh, the Awami League President said that Bangladesh is not secured in the hands of terrorist BNP and war criminal Jamaat as they don't believe in Bangladesh's independence and spirit of the War of Liberation.

"So, it is my call to all of you (people) to continue the ongoing development trend of Bangladesh keeping the country away from the hands of BNP and Jamaat," she added.
