Joy urges youths to vote for talented leaders

vSajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Saturday urged the younger generation of the country to cast their votes for talented and capable leaders in the upcoming general polls for the sake of taking the country forward.

“If you vote for talented and capable persons, the country will go ahead otherwise it will step back towards the darker days,” he said, while addressing a programme at the Chittagong Club.

The Centre for Research and Information, a non-government organisation, arranged the view-exchange programme titled “Let’s Talk” with students from schools, colleges and universities. The programme was moderated by Nafis Imtiaz.

Joy also claimed that the Awami League is taking the country ahead through massive development work. He said Bangladesh had become champions in corruption during the BNP regime, a situation that is not prevailing today.

“There has been no change in the leadership of the party which made the country champions in corruption. So, the country will be brought down by corruption once again if they come to power,” he said.

He also said the opposition party is asking for dialogue and demanding amendment to the constitution over the interim government without going to the parliament.

“If they do not go to the parliament, how is the dialogue possible,” he said.

Replying to a question, he said Mohammed Yunus has never lobbied in favour of the country and never raised his voice during the series of bombings in 2006 or the August 21 grenade attacks.

Joy met local Awami League leaders after the programme. Those in attendance included Presidium Member Mosherrouf Hossain, Forest and Environment Minister Hasan Mahmud, City Unit President of the party ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury, District (north) Unit President Nurul Alam, District (south) Unit President Moslem Uddin and General Secretary Mafizur Rahman, among others.

Mafizur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune that Joy urged the leaders to work together in their respective constituencies for victory in the upcoming general elections, leaving any differences in opinions behind.
