His privileged daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is implementing the dream of building a golden Bengal. People’s leader Sheikh Hasina has written the path of our economic liberation. Unprecedented development was achieved throughout the country during his rule. Bangladesh is now a role model and the wonder of the world in terms of development and prosperity. Bangladesh has achieved significant success in almost all economic indicators. Bangladesh has now become a developing country from a less developed country. The standard of living of citizens has changed through education, health, per capital income, civic services and multifaceted social security programs.
He said that the last 15 years were the greatest period of development in Bangladesh, the development that normally takes 45 years in the infrastructure and socio-economic sectors of the country, under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, we were able to do it in 15 years. Today, Bangladesh has become the 32nd member of the World Nuclear Club through the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.

This development is not tolerated by many people, they want to turn Bangladesh into a dependent state, we cannot allow it to happen.
