Prime Minister and parliament leader Sheikh Hasina demanded cooperation from all and said that Awami League does not believe in vengeance politics. We believe in equality, brotherhood and unity. For this, we have called national unity at different times.
The Premier said this in a written reply to the question of the ruling party MP Mohammad Shahiduzzaman in the parliament session while Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury in the chair on Wednesday.
She said that by acquiring economic freedom of the people, we want to establish a hunger-poverty, illiteracy-free and developed, prosperous country in the world. That's why I want cooperation from all regardless.
Sheikh Hasina also said that all citizens are equal to present government. The Awami League, which believes in constitutional and democratic governance, is always confident about the united power of the people. All citizens' participation in the overall development and progress of a country is important.
She said it is normal to have differences in the democratic social system. But the attempts to finish the opposing team are surprising. After the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on August 15, 1975, the Awami League and its party leaders and workers have been subjected to such hostile behaviour repeatedly.
Speaking about mismanagement of BNP-Jamaat alliance government, the ruling party leader said that since 2001, election Awami League leaders and supporters were facing extreme torture.
"I personally suffered repeated attacks. On August 21, 2004, Awami League leaders and workers were subjected to horrific grenade attacks. On that day, 24 killed and more than 500 people were injured. Those who are alive have suffered painful sprinter.
Responding to the question of the ruling party MP M Abdul Latif, the Prime Minister said that today's Bangladesh is walking on the path of development, progress and prosperity by overcoming the challenges of local and foreign. After being in the list of LDC (LDC) for 42 years, Bangladesh was recognized as a developing country on March 17, 2018, in Qatar.
Highlighting the corruption and misrule of the BNP-Jamaat alliance government, Sheikh Hasina said that the country's progress at the beginning of the twenty-first century stood still. BNP-Jamaat alliance came to power in 2001. Again, the country has fallen in corruption. Tareque Zia looted in the name of Hawa Bhaban. In almost all of the economic development index, Bangladesh was falling behind. In 2008, Awami League came to power with an absolute majority in the elections, and country's progress started again. This progress continued for the last 10 years.
She also said that we were able to upgrade our economic capacities at such a level that big projects like Padma bridge are being implemented by ourselves. We are implementing 10 mega projects including Padma Bridge. For this reason, development and inadequate progress of Bangladesh have been possible.
The Prime Minister said the government has ability to implement a framework of socio-economic development within a short time has already been proved. Bangladesh's socio-economic development is now the role model in the world. The present government is committed to working relentlessly to fulfil countrymen goal, She said.
Responding to MA Matin's question, Prime Minister said that when Awami League government took over power through election, country's power generation capacity was 3,268 MW. Now, electricity production capacity has been increased to 20,854 MW. So far, 93 percent of the country's people have been brought under power. We are hopeful that remaining people will be able to get under the power facility by 2019-20.
