The prime minister said Bangladesh Awami League is now bright in the struggle and achievement in its 70- year history
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has described the Bangladesh Awami League as one of the “well-organized political parties” in the Subcontinent and expressed her firm belief that none can destroy it.
“Awami League is one of the well-organized and oldest political parties in the Subcontinent… none could break the party despite the attacks it faced time and again in the past and none will be able to do it in future also, Insha Allah,” Hasina said while presiding over a discussion organized by her party on the occasion of its 70th founding anniversary, at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital on Monday, reports BSS.
Mentioning that the root of Awami League digs very deep, Sheikh Hasina, also the president of the party, said none could uproot it in the past, even after attempting a hundred times, and none will be able to do so in the future.
Awami League advisory council members Amir Hossain Amu and Tofail Ahmed, presidium members Matia Chowdhury, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim and Mohammad Nasim, eminent historian Professor Muntasir Mamoon, AL joint secretaries Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman, Dhaka North City AL unit President AKM Rahmatullah, and Dhaka South City AL unit President Haji Abul Hasnat took part in the discussion.
Awami League Publication and Publicity Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud and Deputy Secretary Aminul Islam Amin conducted the discussion, while the deputy leader of the House and senior presidium member of the party, Syeda Sazeda Chowdhury, and other senior leaders were present on the podium.
The prime minister said Bangladesh Awami League is now bright in the struggle and achievement in its 70- year history and advised her party supporters to emulate the ideology of their predecessors.
“You’ll have to dedicate yourselves for the welfare of the country and its people by following the ideology of the Father of the Nation (Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman) and your other predecessors,” she said.
Hasina also said that Bangabandhu used to love the country and its people and his aim was to ensure welfare for all.
“So every leader and worker of the party will have to work with the ideology of the Father of the Nation, and they will have to pursue ‘simple living and high thinking’ that we were taught in our childhood,” she added.
The prime minister further said it is possible to achieve many things by leading a simple life and making sacrifices.
“Great sacrifices are needed for great achievements and Bangladesh is advancing towards the peak of development as we are following this principle,” she said, adding that the party leaders and workers will have to go forward by mixing with the people and discarding arrogance.
“We will have to build a country where people’s welfare will be ensured and where they can move holding their head high,” Hasina added.
