Keep up people’s confidence, trust: PM to AL men
DHAKA, Dec 22, 2019 (BSS) – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked the Awami League (AL) leaders and workers to work for keeping up the confidence and trust of the people and supplement the government’s strides to build a poverty-free Bangladesh.
“It’s seen that if anybody gets elected as a parliament member, he or she cannot succeed in the next elections as he or she cannot keep up the people’s confidence and trust,” she said.
The premier added: “So, bearing this in mind you’ll have to always stay beside the people of your locality and work for their welfare.”
Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, said this while exchanging views with party councillors of different cities and districts at Ganabhaban here this evening.
At the function, the councillors, who came to the capital to join the party council, greeted Sheikh Hasina on her reelection as the AL president for the 9th consecutive time through the AL’s 21st National Council held on December 20-21.
“If you think, you were made an MP for this time only and that’s why you will sit idle after making whatever you can and will be victorious again by earning huge money … that will not happen,” she said.
In this connection, the premier mentioned the comment of Tarique Zia in which he (Tarique) said proudly that none will be able to remove the BNP from power if he can make Taka 2000 crore.
“But BNP could not stay in power after making thousands of crores of taka. The party could not remain in power as they were indulged in unbridled corruption, terrorism and militancy and unleashed inhuman torture and repression on the opposition leaders and workers,” she said.
