Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday reiterated her commitment to improving the living standard of the people through socio-economic development of the country.
“I am working for achieving a goal…. I have to implement the ideals with which my father had made the country independent. That is my promise. In this position, I would say that I have to do it,” she said while presiding over a meeting of National Economic Council (NEC) held at the NEC conference room.
She joined the meeting virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.
She said that she wants to make the life of people beautiful and dignified so they can walk keeping their heads high in the world – what the Father of the Nation always wanted and used to say.
Referring to the development of Bangladesh in the last 13 years, Hasina said that Bangladesh has already attained the status of a developing country, graduating from LDC.
“We will move forward as a developing country and become a developed one in the future,” she emphasised.
She said that now no one looks at Bangladesh with sympathy, rather regard it with respect.
The prime minister also highlighted the significance of the eventful month of March due to Bangabandhu’s historic speech on March 7, his birthday on March 17 and Independence Day on March 26.
She mentioned that this month is very important as in this month Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the greatest Bengali of all time, was born.
“Bangabandhu gave the nation freedom and self-dignity as an independent nation,” she said.
Recalling the contribution of Bangabandhu in rebuilding the war-ravaged Bangladesh, Hasina said following the footsteps of the Father of the Nation, the government has taken massive development plans and is implementing those.
“We are taking Bangladesh forward following his ideals.”
She also mentioned that Bangladesh’s economy is moving forward even in the time of Corona pandemic.
The PM extended her gratitude to the people of Bangladesh who worked with sincerity even during this difficult time to attain the success.
