Speakers at a webinar in the capital have said that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has struggled a lot to strengthen the Awami League so that the party can stand on its own feet to do welfare of the people of Bangladesh.

Despite the threat to her own death after losing family members, Awami League (AL) President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working along with her party with utmost sincerity for a long time for the betterment of the people in the country without thinking of herself, they said in a special webinar ahead of her 74th birthday.

The Centre for Research and Information (CRI), a research institute of Bangladesh Awami League, organized the webinar on the occasion of Sheikh Hasina’s 74th birthday last night (Saturday).

AL Presidium Member Begum Matia Chowdhury, AL Joint General Secretary and Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni, former Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique, Freedom fighter and senior journalist Ajay Dasgupta and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Department of Ophthalmology’s Associate Professor Dr Nuzhat Choudhury took part in it as discussants.

Former student leader and journalist Subhash Singha Roy conducted the webinar.

The day Sheikh Hasina returned to this country in 1981 was a tumultuous day, AL Presidium Member Begum Matia Chowdhury said, adding that the people of the country welcomed her that day as she was standing alone without most of her family members.

But, despite having all difficulties, she has ensured democracy for the people of this country and at the same time established the rule of law, she added.

The premier has turned the country into a digital Bangladesh, she said.

Senior journalist Ajay Dasgupta said that Bangabandhu’s daughter had organized the Awami League from outside the country.

After 1981, she came to her homeland and bolstered the Awami League and motivated the party leaders and workers all the time, he added.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said Sheikh Hasina has been watching the life of struggles from her family.

Her parents choose the path of struggle as they had a deep love for the people of the country, she said, adding that the same feelings have passed to her (Sheikh Hasina).

Despite all the fears, Sheikh Hasina did not think about her own destiny but about the people of the country, she added.

Former Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique said the humanitarian leader Sheikh Hasina is moving forward for the development of the country and she will lead the people of the country to the ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Bangabandhu.

Terming Sheikh Hasina as an undisputed leader, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Department of Ophthalmology’s Associate Professor Dr Nuzhat Choudhury said she has brought war criminals to justice to free the nation from stigma.
