Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said she is trying her best to build ‘Sonar Bangla’ dreamed by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu so that the people of Bangladesh can move in the world stage keeping their head high.
She came up with the comment when the cabinet members wished her on her 74th birthday at the regular weekly meeting on Monday (Sept 28).
The premier presided over the meeting after being connected from her official residence Ganabhaban, while her cabinet colleagues joined it from the cabinet division at Bangladesh Secretariat here through a videoconference.
“We know his (Bangabandhu) desire from our childhood, and for that reason, I have been trying my best to materialise his dream to make the country as a ‘Sonar Bangla’ as its people can move in the world stage keeping their head high,” Sheikh Hasina said.
“It’s very tough to work for the country after returning home with losing father, mother, brothers and thus everything. Despite the fact, I am thinking about one thing that I would have to do something better more for the country and its people before leaving (the state power) for whom my father had very much love,” she said.
On her 74th birthday, the prime minister sought blessings from the countrymen, saying, “I seek doa from all so that as long as I remain alive, I could live with dignity and the people of Bangladesh get benefit from my living.”
The prime minister thanked all her cabinet colleagues for their support for taking Bangladesh forward towards the development and prosperity.
Turning to the Covid-19 onslaught on the economy and livelihood of the people, she said, “We could have done much works, had coronavirus not appeared.”
But, she said, that the people of Bangladesh have much strength to overcome whatever hurdles come in their path of prosperity.
