Build well-organised party, win people's trust to confront any conspiracy: PM

Prime Minister and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked her partymen to work for a well- organised party and achieve people's confidence and trust so that no attack or conspiracy can destroy the party as it is like a phoenix bird which rises from the ashes of the burnt, reports BSS.

No attack or conspiracy can ruin the Awami League if the party is strengthened and it gets the full support of the masses, she said.

She made the remarks while presiding over a mammoth public rally held at the historic Suhrawardi Udyan in the capital marking the 75th founding anniversary of the AL.

The Prime Minister reminded her partymen that attempts were made time and again to destroy the AL.

"Despite repeated attacks to destroy the Awami League, none can harm the party as it is the organisation of mass people," she said.

Referring to the attempt to ruin the AL in 2007 by forming the king's party, she said: "They failed in doing such acts as the grassroots people and dedicated leaders and activists are the main strength of the Awami League."

AL is like a phoenix bird which rises from the ashes of the burnt, the premier added.

Sheikh Hasina reminded all that the AL is the party to establish rights of the people and carry out socio-economic advancement of the country.

She said all the achievements of the nation, including the country's independence and current socio-economic development, have been earned under the leadership of the Awami League.

"So, no attacks could harm the Awami League," she added.

The AL President recalled the contribution of its numerous leaders and activists to take the party to such a strong position after going through inhuman torture.

"Yet, they remained in the Awami League and got organised to make it stronger," she said.

She asked her party men to realise that the party is the main component of their power.

The AL chief said several senior leaders deserted her party thinking them bigger than the party.

But, they had forgotten that star glitter in the sky with the light of the sun, she said.

The AL leaders who left the party are now almost lost or completely lost as they used to glitter with the light of the party, she said.

She continued they have taken back some of them in the party as they realized their mistakes while some of them have been engaging in plot to thwart the AL from the power.

The Prime Minister said the party elected her as its president through the 1981 council.

"After being elected as the president of the Awami League, I returned to the country by depriving my children of mother's love and affection mainly to implement the dream of my father to give the countrymen a beautiful and developed life by changing their fate," she said.

Since then, she said, she has been tirelessly working to accomplish the dream of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Briefly describing various measures taken by her government to ensure education, health, accommodation, food, clothing and electricity for all, she said," Bangladesh has made the tremendous development due to the steps taken by the Awami League.

Bangladesh has been recognized as the role model on the global stage for the development and its citizens are now roaming across the globe keeping heads high, she said.

The Prime Minister said Bangladesh got recognition of a developing nation in 2021 when the country was celebrating the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation and Golden Jubilee of the country's independence.
