Bangladesh could be compared with America or a European country, not with Sri Lanka, Pakistan or Afghanistan, as long as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina remains in power, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said on Saturday.

Bangladesh has emerged as a developing nation from a least developed one and its democracy has been restored with the arrival of the daughter of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, he said.

Quader observed this while trashing BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Isliam Alamgir’s comparison between Bangladesh and debt-ridden Sri Lanka.

Quader, also the road, transport and bridges minister, was addressing a programme organised by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student front of Awami League, on the occasion of Sheikh Hasina’s home coming day at the Teacher-Student Centre auditorium in Dhaka.

Terming people as the source of power, Quader said his party under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, also president of the ruling Awami League, will again come to power with the people’s mandates, overcoming all awkward situations.

Referring to Fakhrul’s allegation, he said it is not Awami League rather BNP, which he labeled as the “world recognised terrorist political party” that wants to grab state power through acts of terrorism.

Citing the country’s progress and development, he said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has emerged as a skilled, courageous and successful administrator in the history of the country’s last 47 years.

The achievement and success of the Awami League’s last 13 years rule has plunged BNP into a fresh crisis, he claimed.

BCL President Al Nahiyan Khan Joy presided over the programme where Awami League Presidium Member Jahangir Kabir Nanak, its Organising Secretary BM Mozammel Haque, Dhaka University Pro-Vice-chancellor Prof Mohammad Samad, among others, spoke.
