National Parliament is playing a role in advancing democracy through ups and downs: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that the National Parliament plays a unique role in establishing the rule of law by ensuring accountability and transparency of the government. National Parliament, the focal point of parliamentary democracy, has been playing a role in advancing democracy through many ups and downs. Prime Minister and Leader of the Parliament Sheikh Hasina said this at the special session of the Parliament organized on Friday on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the National Parliament. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina raised a general resolution in the National Assembly for discussion on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee. The discussion on this proposal has started in Parliament. Members of Parliament will participate in the discussion on this proposal tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday. Later the offer will be accepted. The proposal raised by the Prime Minister in the Parliament said, ‘On this occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Bangladesh National Parliament, the opinion of the Parliament is that, “Bangladesh National Parliament as the center of parliamentary democracy will continue to play an effective and active role in improving the quality of life of the people and the successful implementation of their hopes and through this, democracy will be consolidated.”, exploitation-free social system will be established, equality and justice will be ensured for all, we will all work together to fulfill these promises of the constitution, build a happy, prosperous, developed, hunger and poverty-free smart Bangladesh of the future, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s dream of Sonar Bangla – let this be our conviction Proposing the proposal in the Parliament, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that the National Parliament has witnessed many historical events in 50 years. The journey of 50 years has not been smooth in many respects. After the killing of the Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family on the night of August 15, 1975, the constitution was wounded by repeatedly issuing military decrees. Democracy and the National Parliament have been hit. Four fundamental principles of the constitution have been undermined through illegal power grabs, and military and authoritarian regimes. The passing of the Indemnity Ordinance into black law in the Second Parliament in 1979 to stop the Bangabandhu assassination trial was a scandalous chapter in parliamentary history. Later in the Seventh Parliament, the indemnity ordinance was repealed, paving the way for the trial of the worst and most brutal murder in history. Since 2008, democracy has continued in the country. As a result, there is stability. Obstacles at times, and many uphills to cross. The Prime Minister said, ‘Still we are taking Bangladesh forward. Today, Bangladesh has got the status of a developing country, hopefully, by 2041, Smart Bangladesh and the dream Bangladesh of the father of the nation will be developed. Pointing out that Parliament and Parliamentary Committees play an important role in ensuring the accountability of the government, the Prime Minister said that after Awami League came to power in 1996, members were elected instead of ministers to the post of chairman of the Standing Committee to ensure the accountability of the Ministry. The Chairman of the Standing Committee is elected from among the members of the opposition party. The chairmanship of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) was a symbol of the international arena’s confidence in the Parliament of Bangladesh. The Parliament of Bangladesh is a unique example of women in power. The parliament leader said that the current Parliament Speaker, Parliament Leader, Parliament Deputy Leader, Leader of the Opposition, a Whip, and four women are playing the role of standing committee chairpersons. Women’s seats in parliament have been increased to 50 to encourage women in national politics. We are taking Bangladesh forward. Today, Bangladesh has got the status of a developing country, hopefully, by 2041, Smart Bangladesh and the dream Bangladesh of the father of the nation will be developed. After the Prime Minister raised the proposal in Parliament, the discussion on the proposal began. Participating in the discussion, Tofail Ahmed, a member of the Constituent Assembly and the first National Parliament, said that Bangabandhu did politics with one goal in mind. Independence of the country and economic liberation of the people. On August 15, 1975, Bangabandhu and his family were killed. But Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her sister Sheikh Rehana are there. The Awami League flag was handed over to Bangabandhu’s daughter. With that flag in hand, he is managing the state carefully.
