Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the people of the country have no alternative to boat as her party is working to change the fate of the masses since its inception.

“People know that boat is an election symbol of the Awami League and they have no other option instead of the boat. Awami League has come to power not to build its own fate rather to make lot of people,” she said.    

She made the remarks while presiding over a meeting marking the 73rd founding anniversary of the Awami League held at 23, Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital, joining virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence.

PM Hasina said that all the achievements of Bangladesh including independence and prosperity have come at the hand of the Awami League.

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 added.

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 prime minister heavily criticized 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 has yet to stand beside the flood affected people while the government has already mobilized all its resources to give every support to the flood-hit people since the day one.

AL Presidium Members Begum Matia Chowdhury, Advocate Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, 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 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.
