Democracy remains alive under Sheikh Hasina’s leadership: Anisul

BRAHMANBARIA, Jan 5, 2017 (BSS) - Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq today said the country's democracy will remain alive under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as she has been keeping the trend of democracy in right track.

"Democracy was halted in different times in the country. People's right to franchise was snatched away. But Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina always keeps the democratic trend in right track," he told a mass rally at Poura Muktomanch in Akhaura upazila here.

Akhura Upazila Awami League arranged the rally marking the Victory Day of Democracy with its convener Principal Joynal Abedin in the chair.

"By polls in Magura and Mirpur had created a stigma for the country's democracy. But the Awami League government has restored democracy," he said.

Anisul hoped Awami League will again come in power in another democratic, free and fair national election in 2019.

He said the country has witnessed unprecedented development activities as the incumbent government has been implementing different time-befitting initiatives over the years.
