A well-organised party a great strength for govt: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday said a government having a well-organised party behind can develop a country fast.
"A government can work successfully when there’ll be a well-organised party behind it…a well-organised party is a great strength for a government…this strength works most in developing a country, and I feel that," she said, the UNB reported.
The Prime Minister made the remarks in her introductory speech at the first joint meeting of the newly-formed Awami League Central Working Committee and Advisory Council at its Bangabandhu Avenue central office.
Sheikh Hasina dedicated the first meeting to late AL general secretary Syed Ashraful Islam as today is his first death anniversary.
On January 3, 2019, Syed Ashraf, also the then Public Administration Minister, died at the age of 68 while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Bangkok. He had been suffering from lung cancer.
Hasina said she always put highest importance to her party and instructed that different district, upazila, union and ward-level AL units which are yet to hold their councils have to do that quickly for having a stronger party across the country. "We’ve to build the entire party in a stronger way."
She also put emphasis on holding the councils of various associate organisations of Awami League.
