The prime minister advised the newly elected mayor and ward councillors of Gazipur City Corporation after they were sworn in to office on Thursday

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday urged the public representatives to serve the country and its people to make Bangladesh a developed and prosperous nation.

"You are all elected public representatives. As public representatives, it is your duty and responsibility to work for the development and welfare of the country's people,” she said at the oath-taking ceremony of the newly elected Gazipur Mayor Jahangir Alam.

The prime minister administered the oath to the newly elected mayor of Gazipur City Corporation at the Shapla Hall of her office, reports UNB.

Later, 70 newly elected councillors of general wards and female councillors of the reserved seats of the city corporation were sworn in to office as well. Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain administered the oath to the councillors.

Sheikh Hasina asked the newly elected public representatives to gain public trust and confidence by working in their respective areas.

"People cast votes for you. You will have to work in such a way that you can gain their confidence and trust."

Hasina said her government had created scopes for all the elected representatives to work for the development of their respective areas.

She said since returning to power in 2009, the Awami League government had made Bangladesh a strong and self-reliant country and that pace of development would have to remain the same. “Bangladesh is marching forward, and it is now a role model of development in the world,” she added.

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader was present at the ceremony as well.

Awami League candidate Jahangir Alam was elected mayor in the Gazipur city polls held on June 26.
