Highlighting the October 28 incident, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina once again refused to hold talks with BNP, terming them as “animals.”

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said this in the closing speech of the last session of the 11th Parliament on Thursday. 

Emphasizing the government's progress in various sectors, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said: “Today, as we extend comprehensive support to our citizens, ensuring everything from food security, we are resolute: no disruption, no interference, no election tampering will be tolerated. I am willing to step down if this principle is violated.” 

To illustrate this, a video was shown portraying the BNP's terrorist activities throughout Bangladesh on October 28.

The prime minister asked the countrymen whether they wanted to continue upgrading their living standards or not.

"If they want so, they have to send the Awami League to power again as it will be possible for the party. You have voted for the ‘Boat’ and only the symbol ‘Boat’ can ensure (your) developed life," she said, adding the BNP-Jamaat clique can only give destruction.

"They don't want the (country's) independence and the welfare of the people. This is the reality," she said.

She said her party would try their best to work for the people standing beside them.

The premier said they will build a developed, prosperous and Smart Bangladesh by 2041.

"We want the country's advancement to be continued," she said.

She sought cooperation from the countrymen so that none could play ducks and drakes with their fate, urging the people to stand against the arsonists together.

"I call upon the countrymen to help the law enforcers to capture those who were involved in arson and criminal acts," she said.

She also asked the people to burn the hands that are out to torch vehicles.

"You have to do it collectively. It will be possible to reduce criminal acts in such ways. There is nothing to fear because their number is very few," she said.

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury presided over the session.
