Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said Awami League is a party of people and they are the strength of this party.

"Awami League formed government after winning elections in 2008, 2014 and 2018 through people's vote. God willing, we would form government after winning next general election too through people's vote. We don't need to rely on anything else for this," he said.

The minister said this while addressing as the chief guest at a discussion and doa mahfil organised by the ministry marking "National Mourning Day and 

47th Martyrdom Anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman".

Anisul said though many senior leaders of then East Pakistan colluded with 

Pakistani Miliatry leaders, Bangabandhu never made any kind of compromise 

with them.

"Pakistani military rulers used to fear Bangabandhu, they had logic behind 

this fear. Bangabandhu always used to do systematic politics, he never believed in guerrilla war, he never believed politics of conspiracy. He believed in political movement taking his people along. He had strong patriotism and deep love for his people," the law minister added.

"Even the Pakistani junta government did not dare to kill him, but we did it. We can never get rid of this stigma," he further said.

Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Division Secretary Md Moinul Kabir, Law 

and Justice Division Secretary Md Golam Sarwar, Inspector General of Directorate of Registration Shahidul Alam Jhinuk, Acting Registrar General of Supreme Court Md Golam Rabbani, Additional Secretary Hafiz Ahmed Chowdhury, 

Joint Secretaries Umme Qulsum and Arifuzzaman and Deputy Secretaries Sheikh 

Golam Mahbub and Gazi Kalimullah, addressed the discussion, among others.

Later, a special munajat was offered seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of the martyrs of August 15, 1975 carnage.
