The plot of Kuchkrimahal is still going on. They don't want Bangladesh, they don't want the development of Bangladesh. They must be resisted collectively. Strengthening Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's hand, Vision 2041 must be implemented with determination and contribution from every position.

He recalled playing sports together with Russell as a child. On Tuesday morning, the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources laid wreaths at the portrait of Sheikh Russell at Vidyut Bhawan on the occasion of Sheikh Russell Day.
