Bangladesh joins the list of notified countries: Prime Minister


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the people of Bangladesh can walk internationally with pride due to the construction of a bridge in a decision.

He said, this is the bridge of our pride. This bridge is not judged by the amount of money. A decision has given that status to Bangladesh. Those who used to warn us with words before. And there was a feeling that Bangladesh cannot continue without them. That mindset has changed. Now, if Bangladesh hears it, it will be recognized internationally. The people of the country have occupied a seat of dignity. The freedom gained at the cost of the blood of lakhs of martyrs has been successful. We will make the country developed and prosperous by 2041 through socio-economic development.

He said this while speaking as the chief guest at the Sudhi rally on the occasion of the completion of the bridge project at the Mawa end of the Padma Bridge on Friday (July 5) afternoon.

Sheikh Hasina said, we people of Padmapar were suffering all the time. come and go First, in 1952, we crossed the Padma by boat to go to Dhaka with my grandfather. It took four days and four nights. Dad was in jail then. How many people lost their lives in this journey. Deprived of various services. Today, no one is left behind.

What honey is in this MD position?

Dr. Referring to Yunus, he said, a verse. That is the post of MD of a bank. As many complications, as many problems with this position. Now if there is law in the bank, one can stay for 20 years. He is now 70 years old. You left from extra time. How does he still live there? Why did a Nobel laureate for a little MD post? I never got the answer to this question.

Sheikh Hasina said, the ambassador of the big country that promotes him (Dr. Yunus) comes to my office. Intimidation of my officers. Says, if there is no post of MD, this money (funding of Padma Bridge) will be stopped. Hillary Clinton called twice to lobby me for the MD position. Sherry Blair called. A representative of the French President arrived. Many people from the world came. I just asked, what honey is in the post of MD?

Our Finance Minister Muhit Sahib and Foreign Affairs Adviser Gowhar Rizvi Sahib went to him and said, you will not be MD anymore, you should stay here as an advisor. He does not agree to that. He filed a case against the government. Two cases. Everyone was shocked. I told the Attorney General, it is nothing like that. Just present the law. If the court can, extend the age of someone. Later he lost the case and became even more angry. And the movement of his ambassador is going on. Repeatedly comes to PMO and hears the same thing. Later an under secretary came and said the same thing. Later I said, if anyone else comes from the US, I will not meet or talk. After that I never met anyone else.
