Joy calls for another chance for AL

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy Friday said Awami League should be given another chance to finish an “incomplete revolution”, and stressed on the need for continuing developments for a new and modern Bangladesh.

Joy said there had been “revolutionary changes” in the last five years, saying: “Think where we were and where we are now?”

Joy made the comments at a programme titled: “Vision 2021, Achievements of Last Five Years and the Promises for Next Five Years” at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre, where he also exchanged views with people and answered questions from journalists.

Terming the upcoming elections as the most important polls in the country’s history, he said, “What the country’s future will be will depend on this election.”

Criticizing main opposition BNP, Joy said: “Opposition party has many criticisms against us. But they never say what they will do in the future. They don’t say what they will do regarding economics, militancy and terrorism, because corrupts and terrorists are with them. They are doing politics with ‘Rajakars’. How can they say they will curb militancy? ”

He added that attempts at taking over power with propaganda have to be countered.

Joy said: “If Awami League does not come to power, the developments that took place will be destroyed. The electricity the country has now will be finished in two years. The miscreants are waiting in queue for chances.”

He also cautioned the citizens, saying they need to see both the opportunities and the fear that lay ahead.

Speaking about the ruling party’s “Vision 2021”, Joy said Awami League wants to make the country a middle income nation by 2021. Claiming that per capita income had doubled in the last five years and it will double again in the next five years, he said it is an achievement possible only by the Awami League government.

The country’s GDP will increase to 10%, Joy said, adding: “Bringing 3G to the country was our pledge. If we are voted to power again, we will bring 4G.”

Among others, economist Abul Barkat, cricketer Shakib Al Hasan, journalist Nayeemul Islam Khan, Bangladesh Protidin editor Noim Nizam, Bhorer Kagoj editor Shyamal Dutta and Dhaka Tribune editor Zafar Sobhan were present at the programme.
