Mentioning that Awami League only represents the people of Bangladesh, Alam said the party has brought the nation’s independence through a long struggle led by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and it will also bring economic emancipation of the people as well.
He said Bangladesh witnesses real development when Awami League comes to power. Over the last nine years, Awami League led present government has pulled five crore people out of extreme poverty, making the country a role model of development abroad.
Bangladesh would be economically self-reliant if Awami League remains in power, he also added.
Alam called upon the people to vote for Awami League in next national election to continue the pace of country’s development.
‘Bangladesh will be turned into a safe haven for corrupt people, terrorists and militants if BNP and its cohorts come to power again,’ he continued.
