Mentioning that average income and life expectancy of people in Bangladesh were up during the Awami League government, Education Minister and Joint General Secretary of AL, Dr Dipu Moni, said the country needs Sheikh Hasina's government again and again for continued development.
She was speaking as chief guest at the tri-annual conference of Sadar upazila and Municipality Awami League at Chandpur Stadium on Monday afternoon.
As Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina works for the countrymen, living standards have improved significantly, she said.
"Due to the Russia-Ukraine war, many countries in the world are experiencing an adverse situation. Even in such conditions, we are in a better position than many," she said.
People did not forget the terrible days of arson attacks unleashed by BNP-Jamaat, she said. During their tenure, they could not give anything to the people of the country, rather they snatched away people's wealth, Dipu Moni said. They mercilessly tortured, killed and oppressed people, she added.
The minister said that it's BNP-Jamaat's nature to start conspiracies ahead of national elections. "We have to unite to make all elections successful, including national election," she said.
The minister reiterated that the national election will be held on time and it won't wait for anyone. Some political parties oppose elections without reasonable grounds, she said.
Chaired by Chandpur Sadar Upazila Awami League President Nurul Islam Nazim Dewan, District Awami League President Nashir Uddin Ahmed inaugurated the conference.
Jatiya Sangsad whip and acting organizational secretary of Awami League Chattogram Division Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon, Relief and Social Welfare Secretary Sujit Roy Nandi, general secretary of district Awami League Abu Naeem Patwari Dulal were also present there.
