The Prime Minister on Sunday directed the leaders of Awami League to maintain unity and gave necessary directives on further strengthening the organization.

The Prime Minister said this while addressing leaders of Awami League from different countries across Europe as they met her at her hotel suite in London.

After the meeting, Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters. He said various issues on strengthening the organizations were discussed during the meeting.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged that the leaders of All European Awami League give a befitting reply to BNP-Jamaat’s propaganda abroad against Bangladesh and the government.

Seikh Hasina said BNP and Jamaat have huge money earned through corruption and they are carrying out a negative publicity against the government by capitalizing their illegal money.

She also said she had endured huge pain and sacrificed a lot only for the cause of the country and welfare of its people.

As a party of people, the Premier said Awami League has to move ahead by working hard through coordination among senior and junior leaders.

Recalling the huge contributions of the senior leaders in Europe after the brutal assassination of Bangabandhu in 1975, the Prime Minister said she still remembers their strong role during bad times of the party.

The Prime Minister also put emphasis on showing due respect to the senior leaders saying their experience and sacrifices would encourage juniors to go further ahead towards meeting aspirations of the people.

President of All European Awami League Anil Das Gupta led the delegation came from Austria, Belgium, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and France.
