Awami League chief Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday vowed that her party will take the country towards prosperity facing all conspiracies to give the people improved lives.

"Conspiracies are hatched every time [during elections] and we overcome them. We have to be cautious to continue the [winning] trend," she said while addressing leaders and activists of the Awami League who had gathered at her official residence, Ganabhaban, in Dhaka to greet her on her homecoming day in the morning.

The prime minister said she never thinks about what she gets, instead wishing to build a beautiful future for the countrymen.

"That is our target and we are working to implement it," she said.

The prime minister recalled her homecoming on May 17, 1981, when she was welcomed by hundreds of thousands of people defying storm and rain.

She continued that when she returned to Bangladesh, the country was run by war criminals and the killers of Bangabandhu and most of his family members.
The prime minister said she returned to the country despite knowing that she might be killed but she had faith in the people and leaders and activists of the Awami League.

"I returned to the country as I had strong faith in the people of the country and leaders and activists of the Awami League," she said.

Sheikh Hasina said she had no experience in running such a big organization when she took charge of the Awami League as its president.

"Now the Awami League has become the country's strongest, largest and most acceptable organization," she said.

"Today's Bangladesh is a changed Bangladesh," she said.

The premier said her government has changed Bangladesh with massive nationwide development in the last 15 years, noting that governments following the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members on August 15, 1975 did nothing for the development of the country and its people.
Instead, they killed hundreds of military officials and tortured and killed Awami League leaders and activists to hang on to power, she said.
