DHAKA: Sajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said that the young generation have risen and reestablished democracy in the country.
He also said that the anti-liberation power did not succeed to blot out the spirit of liberation.
He came up with these assertions in a seminar titled ‘Vision 2021: Goals and Achievements’ arranged by Suchinta Foundation at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre on Friday afternoon.
Sajeeb Wazed Joy said, “Due to the failure of a political party, an undemocratic power seized the power of the country in 2007, but the young generation rose then and reestablished democracy in the country.”
