Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday (Nov 10) urged the countrymen to work together to take the country further ahead keeping its dignity intact.
She also said: “We have taken Bangladesh into a dignified position. We have to take the country further ahead with maintaining dignity.”
The premier made the urge this while receiving blankets and winter clothes from various financial institutions for PM’s Relief and Welfare Fund at a function in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) here.
Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh witnessed a massive development in the last 14 years as her party Awami League is in power for a long period.
In this connection, she referred to talks with Malaysian leader Mahathir Mohammad in an international programme where Mahathir told that a long-term government is required for ensuring the country’s development.
“We have been able to develop Bangladesh as we are in power for a long time,” she said, adding: “You (businessmen) and the people have the contribution whatever Bangladesh has achieved”.
PM’s Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus moderated the function.
