Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that Bangladesh has earned the reputation of being the role model of development as Awami League assumed power thrice with people’s mandate.
She said this while addressing a reminiscence meeting coinciding with 42nd martyrdom anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangladesh Chhatra League organised the meeting at Krishibid Institute auditorium in Dhaka on Thursday.
The prime minister said once Bangladesh was known as the land of flood, water surge, poverty and hunger, where people had no hope and future. Unfortunately, the post 1975 rulers presented Bangladesh before the world community in that manner.
After 21 years the Awami League assumed power and had taken the initiative to erase the bad name, taking various pragmatic steps for country's development in all sectors, she said.
Sheikh Hasina said the lessons that she had learnt from her parents to love the people, work for country's welfare as well as taking risk for the country, always guided her to serve the nation.
