Pns: Confident about Awami League’s victory in the next national election, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the party men to forge a strong unity at all levels so that the ‘sure victory’ must not slip away just for intra-party conflicts.

“We’ll win in the next elections as people are in our favour, they’re ready to give us vote. So, we’ve to remain careful so that none can hatch any conspiracy over the polls,” she said.

The PM said this while speaking at a civic reception accorded to her by the French chapter of AL at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand (Opera) on Tuesday night.

Sheikh Hasina said all have to remain alert so that no one can conspire against the victory of Awami League in the 11th national election which is scheduled to be held in December next.

“If there’re differences [of opinion] among ourselves, there’s a possibility for the conspirators to hatch conspiracies. If we remain united no one can harm us by hatching conspiracies, all have to remember this,” the PM said.

She put emphasis on strengthening the party and removing all the differences among the party activists through discussions.

Hasina said the Election Commission has already announced that the next election will be held in December next year, and if this is so the government has at best nine months in hand. “We want to complete our development projects very quickly so that the benefits of these projects could be taken to the people of the country.”

She also mentioned that no one will be able to stop the country’s advancement that has been started during the AL government.

But, Hasina said, all must remain alert so that those who had handed over the national flag that got stained with the blood of millions of martyrs to war criminals, and given jobs to the killers of the Father of the Nation cannot return to power. “The anti-liberation and anti-independence elements must not return to power.”

Praising the expatriate Bangladeshis for contributing a lot to the country’s economy, the PM urged them not to do anything which will tarnish the image and honour of the country.

Hasina highly criticized the BNP-led alliance who had burnt hundreds of people through hurling petrol bombs , 582 polling centers, and hundreds of copies of the holy Quran at Baitul Mukarram in the name of resisting the 2014 general election.

Referring to her bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, Hasina said detailed discussions were held with him to boost French investment in Bangladesh as well as enhancing bilateral trade and commerce.
