Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now abroad as she left the country to join the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Following the footprint of Bangabandhu, she also delivered her speech in Bangla at the UNGA like the previous years.

On the occasion, discussions, milad and doa mahfils and special prayers will be organised in the capital and across the country.
In 2008, she led the Grand Alliance to an overwhelming victory acquiring 90 percent of parliament seats in the general elections. She was elected the Prime Minister on January 5, 2014 for the second time in a row.
