The Prime Minister said we want to prepare the young generation to take Bangladesh forward in the future.

He said this while addressing a discussion meeting on the occasion of 49th founding anniversary of the Awami Juba League here on Wednesday afternoon.

From Ganobhaban, he virtually participated in the discussion meeting organized by Krishibid Institution Auditorium (KIB) through video conference.

In response to the demand of BNP leaders

In response to the demand of BNP leaders to send Khaleda Zia abroad, the Prime Minister said that they have shown utmost sympathy by allowing BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to stay at home and get the best treatment in the country.
On the other hand, Khaleda Zia, who was convicted of embezzling orphans’ money, has been accused of patronizing Bangabandhu’s assassins as well as committing inhumane crimes such as celebrating her birthday on August 15, the day the father of the nation was brutally murdered.

He asked the BNP leaders, what are they expecting from us? We let him stay at home and get free treatment in the best hospital in the country. Isn’t that enough? Isn’t that a great generosity? We have shown it (generosity).
