BHOLA, Feb 24, 2018 (BSS)-Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed today urged the people to rally round Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for continuation of development as Bangladesh is progressing fast under her dynamic leadership.
“People have realized that the country witnesses massive development when Sheikh Hasina remains in power. She is a farsighted leader like her father,” said the AL advisory committee member while distributing certificates to the beneficiaries of the 5th national service programme here.
He said Sheikh Hasina had promised to build digital Bangladesh and turn the country into a middle income one. Now digital Bangladesh is no more a dream, he said, adding that the country is now on the way to achieving the middle income status.
Tofail said the Awami League government has successfully curbed militancy but when BNP was in power militants like Bangla Bhai and Shayakh Abdur Rahman killed people brutally.
Mentioning the remarks of BNP leaders that popularity of BNP chairperson will continue to increase as long as she will be in jail, Tofail said if it is true, you (BNP leaders) should keep Begum Khaleda Zia in jail and join the election to ensure your victory.
Sadar upazila nirbahi officer Mridha Md Mijahidul Islam presided over the ceremony while deputy commissioner Md Selim Uddin, sadar upazila parishad chairman Md Mosharraf Hossain, vice chairman Md Yunus, district Awami League leader Moinul Hossain Biplob, among others, spoke on the occasion.
Later, Tofail Ahmed inaugurated a multimedia and laptop distribution programme. A total of 177 laptops were distributed among different educational institutions of the upazila.
