Tested leaders to lead AL: Hasan
Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said the hands of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina would be further strengthened if the tested leaders of Awami League are entrusted with the task of leading the party at different tiers.
“Many leaders remain inactive in organizational activities, if the party remains in power, this should not be tolerated . . . Many will join the party to earn money easily which also should not be accepted. Tested leaders would be entrusted with the task of leading the party. Then, the hands of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina would be stronger,” he said.
The minister made the remarks while addressing the triennial conference of Awami League Faridpur upazila unit at Wazi Uddin Pouro auditorium in Pabna. Hasan said Awami League (AL) is the name of an enriched organization and the country’s independence came under the leadership of this organization. Bangabandhu brought the freedom through fighting for his life, he added. The minister said Bangabandhu did not only want sovereignty, he also wanted to build a developed nation.
“But, he (Bangabandhu) couldn’t fulfill his dream as he was assassinated brutally on August 15, 1975. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working relentlessly to implement the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” said Hasan, also AL joint general secretary. He said the government’s initiatives in combating Coronavirus pandemic under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have been lauded across the globe. Bangladesh is ahead in collecting vaccines compared to many other countries, he added.
