Poor now have chance to dream as Sheikh Hasina is alive: FM

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Saturday termed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina the ‘biggest friend’ of the marginalised people and said the poor in Bangladesh got the chance to dream as she remains alive.

She ‘put smiles’ on the faces of the Bangladesh’s poor people, he said while addressing a programme marking the 40th anniversary of Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote and birthday of the Prime Minister that falls on September 28.

She is the “biggest friend” of the poor people and the “biggest leader” of the grassroots, Dr Momen said, adding that they firmly believe that Bangabandhu's dream of Sonar Bangla will be achieved by 2041 under the leadership of the Prime Minister.

The prime minister established the rule of law in the country and it’s because of her, the businesspeople are doing their business with peace in the country as there is the rule of law and there is no disruption like hartal and blockades.

He said the Awami League has emerged as a ‘strong and united’ political party under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

Dr Momen said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman not only gave an independent State but also helped all dreams of building ‘Sonar Bangla’.

The Prime Minister has taken the responsibility to materialise the dream of Bangabandhu.

State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid, AL leaders Sujit Roy Nandi and M Sha-e-Alam Murad also spoke with Jote President Falguni Hamid in the chair.
