PM questions objective of “prevent boat” campaign

DHAKA, July 21, 2018 (BSS) – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today blasted
perpetrators of “prevent boat” campaign ahead of the elections in the
yearend, questioning whether they want to install anti-liberation forces and
war criminals in power.

“There is a quarter in the country who doesn’t see any development and
some are saying that the boat will have to be resisted. My question is —
those who want to thwart the boat want do bring the Rajakars and war
criminals in power,” she told a grand mass reception at the historic
Suhrawadhy Udyan here this afternoon.

Bangladesh Awami League accorded her the reception for Bangladesh’s
graduation to a developing nation, launching Bangabandhu Satellite-I, her
achievement of Global Women’s Leadership Award and D. Litt from Kazi Nazrul
University of Asansole of India’s West Bengal.

Parliamentary Deputy Leader of and Awami League’s senior Presidium member
Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury presided over the function when party’s General
Secretary and Road Transport Minister Obaidul Quader read out a citation or
“obhinondon patra” congratulating the premier and party President on her
achievements and handed it over to her.

Senior leaders of the party were present on the dais.
