DHAKA: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the popularity of the Awami League led government has increased despite the fact that the acceptability of any ruling party usually declines in many cases.
“Popularity of the ruling party usually declines in many cases. But the popularity of the Awami League government has increased as we could achieve the people’s trust and confidence through our activities,” she added.
The premier was speaking in a joint meeting of the AL central executive committee and advisory council at its head office at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital Friday (April 19) afternoon.
“People of all professions and classes immensely supported us in the last general election which was never seen in the past,” she said referring to the last general election.
The AL got collective supports from the business community as well as from the professionals such as farmers, labourers, students and teachers, she mentioned.
“Most importantly, the new and female voters wanted to see the Awami League in the power again and they casted their votes in favour of us to get our services,” the premier said.
Sheikh Hasina, also president of the AL, asked the recently formed eight committees comprising members of the presidium, executive committee and advisory council to take initiatives to reshuffle the party from the grassroots level.
“Our aim is to build the Bangladesh Awami League as a stronger party,” she said further.
The premier said the condition of BNP-Jamaat is like a parricide as people boycotted them because they had been resorting to corruption, terrorism, militancy and nepotism while in power.
