Vote for boat in next polls: Shahriar

RAJSHAHI, May 20, 2018 (BSS) - State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam, MP, here called upon the people to vote for Awami League in next polls.

Urging the people to cast their vote for boat in next all elections to continue the pace of development in the country, he said, 'Rajshahi city's development would be taken place only if you cast your vote for boat in every poll in future.'

'Bangladesh will be turned into a safe haven for corrupt people, terrorists and militants if BNP and its cohorts come to power again,' he added.

The state minister was addressing a meeting at a city community centre yesterday afternoon as the chief guest.

Awami League district unit arranged the meeting to mark the home coming day of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Chaired by Akhter Jahan, MP, the meeting was addressed, among others, by former mayor of RCC AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, AL Central Advisory Committee member Professor Sayedur Rahman Khan, former state minister Professor Zinatunnessa Talukder and Zila Parishad chairman Muhammad Ali Sarker.

Alam urged all party leaders and workers to be united in the electioneering for victory of boat. He said there is no alternative to win in the RCC election to triumph in all seats of greater Rajshahi in the next general election.

The state minister said Awami League is the only party which represents the people of Bangladesh. The party has brought nation's independence through a long struggle led by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The party will also bring economic emancipation of the people, he added.

Alam said Bangladesh witnesses real development when Awami League comes to power. Over the last nine years, the Awami League led present government has pulled over five crore people out of extreme poverty, making the country a role model of development abroad.

Bangladesh would be economically self-reliant if Awami League remains in power, he also added.
