Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday (December 06, 2022) asked Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leaders and activists to counter anti-government propaganda on social media, and point out the misdeeds of BNP-Jamaat.
“We have created ‘Digital Bangladesh’. But today, social media is flooded with propaganda against us. I would like to ask our Chhatra League leaders and activists to give fitting replies to these,” she said.
The premier was addressing the 30th National Council of BCL, the student wing of Bangladesh Awami League, at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka.

“When they write something against us, you don’t even need to give a reply. If only their misdeeds can be mentioned in the comments (under propaganda posts on social media), they will stop,” she added.
Sheikh Hasina, also AL president, inaugurated the council at around 11:30 am.
