“I would like to make an appeal to every leader and activist that you will have to make the party well-organised and stronger … If the organisation is strong and the support of the masses can be gained, all sorts of conspiracy can be foiled,” she said while addressing a discussion arranged in the city’s historic Suhrawardy Udyan, marking the 75th founding anniversary of Bangladesh Awami League.

AL leaders and activists uphold the organization with their hard works, defying a lot of sufferings and repeated blows, said Hasina.

The PM said her government successfully transformed the country into a Digital Bangladesh as per their commitment made before the 2008 election.

Mentioning that the AL has also reduced the poverty rate, she said, “Today’s Bangladesh has gained dignity in the world as we worked for the improvement of the fate of the people.”

She said they reduced the poverty rate to 18.7% now from 41% in 2006, while  the extreme poverty rate to 5.6% from 25.1%. 

“Inshallah, there will be no extreme poor in Bangladesh,” she said.
