Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the government realise people’s sufferings (for price hike of fuels and electricity rationing) created due to ongoing global economic crisis and trying to ease that.

The Premier said this while speaking at the meeting with the organising secretaries of Awami League (AL) from eight divisions at her official residence Ganabhaban in the capital on Sunday (August 14).

She said, “We realise people’s sufferings. Many people including the opposition, will try to take its advantage, but if they do excess in the name of movement, then people’s sufferings will increase.”

She said the opposition party was being given scope to raise movement against the government.

“Our opposition is getting a scope to raise movement. Let them do that. I also want it,” she said.
 
In this connection, Sheikh Hasina, also the President of the ruling Awami League, said she has directed concerned authorities to allow the opposition to stage their movement and not to arrest and disturb anyone for this.

“If they want to besiege the Prime Minister's office, let them do that,” she said.
 
She continued that people of the country know very well that the government has tried with utmost sincerity to tackle the situation regarding the fuel prices and electricity production.
 
The prime minister added, “The opposition will try to utilise the scopes, but if they do anything excessive, people will ultimately suffer more for that. They have to realise that.”
 
She also expressed her apprehension that she doesn’t know how much they will be successful in raising the movement, but surely it will bring loss for the country.
 
Sheikh Hasina said, “But, we will be able to handle that, I have that belief.”
