Vote for ‘Boat’ to continue development efforts: PM Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina reiterated her appeal to the countrymen to vote for her party’s election symbol “Boat” to continue the current government’s endeavors to ensure the country’s overall development.

“The next national election will be held in December next or January, 2024. I urge you to again vote for the “Boat” and bring Awami League to power and thus give another scope to serve you,” she said while addressing as the chief guest a grand rally held at the Helipad Ground at Mithamoin in Kishoreganj on Tuesday.

The Prime Minister asked all to raise their hand in favour of “Boat” and thus for the development as the AL government has made a massive change by making Bangladesh a model of development on the world stage in the last 14 years.

In reply, the people who thronged in thousands at the venue to see and hear Sheikh Hasina, waved their hands in support of the “Boat”.

“Bangladesh has turned around in the last 14 years and has achieved dignity by transforming into a developing nation. Bangladesh has appeared as the role model for the development. Bangladesh is advancing and will march ahead,” she said.

The Prime Minister said whenever had the BNP-Jamaat clique assumed power, they brought untold sufferings for the countrymen and on the contrary, whenever Awami League was voted to power, the fate of the people changed.

Mentioning that BNP was formed illegally by a military dictator who grabbed power violating the county’s constitution, she said, “They (BNP) can give nothing to the people rather can torture and loot them.”
