Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said no one can distort the country’s history and play ducks and drakes with the fate of the nation anymore.
“Many generations read and learnt distorted history. Today, no one will be able to distort the country’s history and play ducks and drakes with the fate of Bengali nation,” she said.
The Prime Minister was addressing a discussion meeting arranged marking the Independence Day and National Day, 2019.
Bangladesh Awami League organised the discussion at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the city.
Sheikh Hasina said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman gifted Independence to the nation, but his name had been erased from the history of Liberation War and that of the Language Movement.
She said the truth can never be hidden with lies for long as it gets revealed finally.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League chief, said her government vowed to establish the country as hunger- and poverty-free ‘Sonar Bangladesh’ when the country will celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 2020 and the Golden Jubilee of the country’s independence in 2021.
Mentioning that Awami League is the lone political party that properly serves the nation, she called upon its every activist and leader to work for the country being imbued with the spirit of patriotism.
“To build Bangladesh, we’ll have to strengthen the organisation (AL),” Hasina said.
Chaired by Sheikh Hasina, the meeting was addressed, among others, by AL advisory council member Amir Hossain Amu, AL presidium members Begum Matia Chowdhury, MP, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, MP, Mohammad Nasim, MP, Ramesh Chandra Sen, MP and Muhammad Faruk Khan, MP.
AL Publicity and Publication Secretary and Information Minister Hasan Mahmud and its Deputy Publicity Secretary Aminul Islam jointly conducted the discussion.unb
