The ruling Awami League's call for celebratory messages has drawn overwhelming response from grassroots on the 73rd founding anniversary of the party with people thanking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her different game-changing initiatives.

Over 10 female footballers from Rangpur's Chadmapuskorini area made it to the national level of the game. They lacked opportunities, they even lacked a playground. Sheikh Hasina, who is the chief of Awami League, became aware of it. 

The daughter of Bangabandhu donated Tk1 million for 10 female players and also managed a playground for them. People, in general, expressed their gratitude towards their leader for many such noble initiatives that changed their lives.

On May 20, Awami League's official Facebook page invited greetings on the occasion of the party's founding anniversary. It also invited discussion and recommendations regarding the party's course of action. A handful of selected audiovisuals were also shared on the verified account of Awami League.

Standing in front of Chadmapuskorini mini-stadium in Rangpur, Md Milon Mia, the coach of AFC Female Football Team said, "The establishment in front of which I am speaking is a gift from the honorable prime minister. This mini-stadium is for female footballers in Chadmapuskorini area. Sports enthusiasts as well as people from all walks of life are happy with this gift.

"Ten to twelve female footballers are playing for the national team under different age groups. The Honorable Prime Minister donated Tk 10 lac (1 million) for female footballers and transformed this area. It is rare in history. On this occasion of Awami League's founding anniversary, let me extend heartfelt wishes to the honorable prime minister and the party. At the same time, we expect for this party to form the government once more. We wish every success for the sports arena of Bangladesh so that it can stand with pride in the global sports arena."

Shahab Uddin Shihab, a Patuakhali Medical College student, said, " This medical college in Patuakhali was an earnest demand for the people in Patuakhali as well as 60 lac people of Southern Bangladesh. In that context, on February 25, 2012, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, while addressing a gathering, announced the establishment of Patuakhali Medical College to ensure people's access to healthcare. Then it was established as the country's 24th medical college. Consequently, people can receive treatment without having to go out of the district."

He said, "We don't understand the party, we are not taking any side. What people are concerned about are a better lifestyle and basic needs such as food, clothes, education, habitat, and health. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made a significant contribution to this end. Undoubtedly, Bangabandhu endowed us with independent Bangladesh and her daughter is advancing the country towards financial independence, following her father's legacy. Our best wishes for Awami League. Let our golden Bangladesh go ahead with the leadership of Sheikh Hasina."

Female entrepreneur Mosammad Dilruba of Rangpur Sadar's UDDC said, "As a female entrepreneur, I thank honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. UDDC is the epitome of her initiative to digitize Bangladesh. Poor rural women make wonderful products such as Nakshi Katha. We capture pictures of their works and send them to Platform 101. Customers can pick that up according to their choice. By heart, we wish this party to form a government once more. We wish them every success."

Many such earnest wishes were published by Awami League's web team on the occasion of the party's founding anniversary observed on Thursday.
