Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Saturday said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has put smiles on the faces of the poor people in the country.
"Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the biggest friend of the poor people and the biggest leader of the grassroots people," he said.
Dr Momen made the remarks while addressing a programme at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the 40th anniversary of Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote and birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina that falls on September 28.
The Foreign Minister said they got the chance to dream as Sheikh Hasina remains alive. "Whatever frustration we had, it's over."
He said they firmly believe that Bangabandhu's dream of Sonar Bangla will be achieved by 2041.
Dr Momen said the Awami League has emerged as strong and united political party under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. "She established the rule of law in the country."
He said businesspeople are doing their business with peace in the country as there is the rule of law and there is no disruption like hartal and blockades.
Dr Momen said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman not only gave an independent State but also helped all dream of building ‘Sonar Bangla’.
"Bangabandhu dreamt of a developed, stable and non-communal country where there would be no big gap between the rich and the poor, and the basic rights for all will be ensured," said the Foreign Minister.
He said Prime Minister Sheikh has taken the responsibility to materialise the dream of Bangabandhu.
State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid, AL leaders Sujit Roy Nandi and M Sha-eAlam Murad also spoke with Jote President Falguni Hamid in the chair.
