Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina asked her party leaders and activists to make sure that none including her party men would suffer against the backdrop of the Covid-19 outbreak and the Russia-Ukraine war.
“Make sure that not a single activist of mine and the countrymen would suffer,” she told the party leaders and activists in a meeting.
She was exchanging views yesterday with leaders and activists of Tungipara and Kotalipra upazila Awami League, its front and associate bodies at Kotalipara Upazila AL office in Gopalganj district.
The Prime Minister said her government has been working tirelessly to transform Bangladesh into a developed and prosperous nation free from poverty and hunger as envisioned by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
She asked the Awami League leaders and activists to stand beside the people to pursue the government move that none will remain poor, homeless and hunger anymore.
“Each of the Awami League leaders and workers has to work for changing the mindset of doing only for oneself,” she said.
The Premier reminded her party activists as well as the countrymen that the world is now going through a critical juncture due to the double blow of the ongoing Coronavirus and the Russia-Ukraine war and reiterated her call to all to show austerity in every sector particularly in using energy like electricity.
“Big countries such as America and England around the world are now suffering from food crisis. We’re still in a good position and trying to be well. It requires help from all,” she said.
The Prime Minister asked all to bring every inch of land across the country under cultivation to grow more food as Bangladesh never faces such crisis.
Sheikh Hasina said her government has built the Padma Bridge, given electricity to every house and is giving home to every landless and homeless people and ensuring food security for all aimed at continuing the march of Bangladesh towards prosperity.
Despite the fact, she said some people at home and abroad have been trying to oust the Awami League government.
