Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the government is aware about the current situation of looming flood in the country and collecting information from all sources.

“We’re collecting information from different parts of the country. There’s no laxity,” she said.

The Prime Minister said this while delivering her speech at a joint meeting of Awami League advisory council and Central Working Committee at her official residence Ganobhaban.

She also said everyone knows about his duties and responsibilities and asked the party leaders and activists to remain alert, prepared and active to face possible flood in the country.

The Prime Minister emphasised strengthening political and organisational power to retain the recognition of developing country status.

“For retaining the status of developing country, we need political power mostly, we need the organisation and we need the support from the people,” she said.

She said the main strength of the government to put Bangladesh in the current position was the people of the country and their support, as per UNB report.

“The way Bangladesh is advancing, I think we need to build up the organisation more strongly,” she said.

In this connection, she mentioned that when Awami League was not in power at that time it had a plan as a political party how to advance the country.

“For this, whenever we formed government, we worked hard as per plan and lift up the country at this place,” she said.

The Prime Minister said all the thinking for the advancement of the country has to be preserved in a coordinated way which will help to take the country forward defying all odds.

She said the government in the last ten years continued the trend of development.

“We never stumbled on our way to development, or we never fell behind. We advanced the country step by step in a steady way. This is the most important thing,” she said.

The AL president said the government never neglects the people. “We want to remain as the companion of the people in their well and woes, and work for their welfare. This is our principle and for that reason, we could advance the country,” she said.

She also mentioned that may be Bangladesh cannot be the country like big developed ones, but every people will be able to make their lives a meaningful one.

They will be able to get rid of poverty and their lives will be beautiful.

“Their aims will be fulfilled. We want to build the country that way,” she said.
