Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the people of the country have no alternative to the Awami League (AL) as the party has been working to change the fate of the masses since its inception.

“They (countrymen) know that the boat is an election symbol of the Awami League and people have no other option instead of the boat. AL has come to power not to build its own fate rather to change the lot of people,” Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, said. 

The prime minister said this while presiding over a meeting marking the 73rd founding anniversary of the AL held on Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital, joining virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban in the capital on Thursday.

Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha adds: The premier said that all the achievements of Bangladesh including independence and prosperity have come at the hand of the Awami League.

She added: “The Awami League has been working for people’s welfare since its inception. The party has not only given the people the independence of the country, but also is reaching the fruit of independence to every doorstep.”

She said her government has given electricity to every house and is working to bring every person under a housing scheme as none would remain homeless and landless in the country of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The premier heavily criticised the BNP leader for their demand to stop the grand opening celebration of the Padma Bridge on the plea of flooding.

She said their party (BNP) has yet to stand beside the flood affected people while the government has already mobilised all its resources to give every support to the flood-hit people since day one.

AL presidium members Begum Matia Chowdhury, Advocate Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, and Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, Bir Bikram, Joint General Secretary Mahbub-ul Alam Hanif, International Affairs Secretary Dr Shammi Ahmed, Central Executive Member Parvin Zaman Kalpana, Dhaka South and North City AL presidents Abu Ahmed Monnafi and Sheikh Bazlur Rahman respectively spoke on the occasion.

The party’s central Publicity and Publication Secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap moderated the meeting.

Bangladesh Awami League was formed on this day (June 23) in 1949, which later transformed into the biggest political party of the country to lead struggles of freedom, the War of Liberation and all democratic movements.
