Panchagarh: Railways Minister M Nurul Islam Sujan on Sunday urged the countrymen to vote for “Boat”, the election symbol of ruling party Awami League, for the unhindered development progress of the country.
“After we gained independence, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman gave his utmost efforts to revitalize the economy of the war torn country. His worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now working tirelessly, with a vision to transform Bangladesh into a middle income country by 2030,” Sujan said while addressing a discussion as the chief guest on the occasion of the ‘Na-tional Local Government Day’ here.
Urging people to stay beside the ruling party, the minister said, “The country’s tremendous development in every sector shows how much importance the government has given to the Local Government sector… Vote for Awami League to make her efforts shine, and to keep the wheel of progress moving.”
“BNP’s demand to set up a caretaker government contradicts with the provisions of our constitutions. They have eve declared to boycott election otherwise. If they really cared about the country, and the people they wouldn’t have made such illegal demand in first,” Sujan said.
