Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said her government would materialize the electoral pledges and thus give the people an improved and better life, urging all to work together to build a prosperous and developed country maintaining continuation of ongoing development.
“We want to implement the electoral pledges, based on which we assumed power,” she said.
She was addressing a function at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium in city to mark signing of the Annual Performance Agreement (APA) for FY 2022-23 by the ministries and divisions.
She joined the function virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence here.
The prime minister said the government has transformed Bangladesh into a developing country in 2021 while the nation celebrated twin mega events, birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and 50 years of the country’s Liberation War, in accordance with the Awami League’s election manifesto of 2008.
She said her government is now working tirelessly to change the fate of the countrymen after giving them an improved and better life by making Bangladesh into a developed and prosperous country free from poverty and hunger by 2041.
The government has been implementing a perspective plan for 2021-2041 to pursue the target, she added.
Sheikh Hasina, also President of the Awami League, said her party men do politics as the public servant for the welfare of the people instead of making their own fortunes.
“We do politics. We have a political party and take part in the election. We announce an electoral manifesto in which we give an outline of how we progress the country,” she said.
Noting that the AL never threw away the election manifesto after coming to power, she said they are giving the national budget taking into consideration of the election manifesto.
