Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed to “cleanse” the Awami League and its student body Bangladesh Chhatra League to build the organisations based on Bangabandhu’s ideals.
“You need to root out the weeds from these organisations [Awami League, Chhatra League] and build them as the men of ideals and principles of Bangabandhu,” the UNB reported her saying.
Sheikh Hasina made the remark at a discussion on Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the city yesterday.
She said Bangabandhu in his write-up termed Bangladesh a very fertile land where trees and weeds grow easily. “But the weeds cause harm to the useful trees, so we have to root out the weeds so the trees could grow properly.”
