Bangabandhu’s assassination had stopped Bangladesh’s march forward: PM
Bangabandhu’s assassination had stopped Bangladesh’s march forward: PMPrime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said Bangladesh could have been turned into a developed and prosperous country at least 25-30 years back had the Father of the Nation been alive.
“I can unequivocally say had the Father of the Nation been alive Bangladesh could have been built as a developed and prosperous country at least 25-30 years ago. The country’s people could have got a better life,” she said.
Speaking at a mammoth public rally at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan, she further said, “The way he (Bangabandhu) had attained the nation’s independence, the similar way he could have achieved economic development for the country, but he was not allowed to do that.
She lamented that those grabbed power through a military coup after the assassination of Bangabandhu had tried to remove his name from history and stopped the country’s development and its march forward.
Awami League arranged the public rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the city, marking Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s Homecoming Day.
Recalling Bangabandhu’s homecoming on 10th January 19, 1972, Hasina said Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had first come to Suhrawardy Udyan on his return home though his family members were eagerly waiting for him at home.
Addressing a mammoth gathering at Suhrawardy Udyan on that day, she said he had given the nation the direction how the country will progress with which goals and ideals.
