Bangladesh to move ahead braving all conspiracies: PM


PV Desk : Alleging that Ziaur Rahman, HM Ershad and Khaleda Zia had patronised the killers of Bangabandhu only to hurt her, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina here on Thursday said Bangladesh will continue to move ahead braving all the conspiracies.
“Despite many conspiracies, the country is moving ahead and will continue to move ahead as there’ve been many sacrifices by people, AL leaders and workers, and the sacrifices and devotion of the Father of the Nation and my mother….no one will be able to suppress the people of Bangladesh,” she said.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League President, said this while addressing a memorial meeting on August 15 killings held at Krishibid Institution Auditorium in the city organised by Bangladesh Chattra League (BCL).
After the August 15 killings, Hasina said, the killers and those who had opposed the country’s Independence never thought that the remaining members of Father of the Nation’s family would again come to power.
She alleged that Ziaur Rahman who had grabbed power illegally after 1975 violating the constitution and HM Ershad and Khaleda Zia patronised Bangabandhu’s killers, and even made places for the killers in parliament. “Why? Because they wanted me to give me pain so that I break down. But, they failed to understand whose daughter I’m.”
The Prime Minister said now Bangladesh is a role model of development and it does not happen without any effort or overnight. “Bangladesh is moving ahead as AL has been able to be there in office for successive terms tackling many adverse situations.”
