Govt will move ahead evaluating past: PM


PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today addressed the nation on completion of the fourth year of her second consecutive term in office, saying the incumbent government would go ahead evaluating its success and failure of the past.

“We do not want to cling to the past, but would not forget it either. We will move forward by evaluating the successes and failures of the past and correcting the mistakes and faults,” she said in her televised address this evening.

The premier said the country now was set on the track of the development highway when there was no scope for looking back and expected the present and future generation to take the responsibility for clearing all obstacles to the way of prosperity and progress.

Sheikh Hasina urged the people to take the right decision in coming days remembering what the country’s position was ten years ago.

She expressed her firm conviction that all registered political parties would take part in the next general election to help uphold the country’s democratic process and noted that the election commission by now earned people’s confidence.

“The Honourable president constituted the new Election Commission through a search committee. This commission has by now conducted several local body elections including two city corporation polls,” the premier said.
