Abrar Hussain: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that Bangladesh will become a failed state if anti-liberation forces return to power.
“If the anti-liberation forces and patrons of killers return to power, the country will become a failed one again,” she said while addressing a reception yesterday organized by Canada Awami League at Metro Toronto Convention Centre, reported The Independent. “The country can’t be developed unless there is continuation of the government,” said the Premier.
Talking about her party’s election manifesto, Sheikh Hasina said they achieved much more than what they wanted to do. “As Bangladesh is making progress, it now gets invitation to join the G7 Outreach Session.” “When our country makes progress, we get such invitations,” said the PM, adding that she also got invitations and joined G7 Outreach Session in 2001 and 2016.
Hasina said her government is working to ensure the development and welfare of the country’s people by placing a Tk 464,573-crore national budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year, while the previous one was only Tk 61,000 crore.
In the proposed budget, the size of the annual development programme (ADP) is Tk 173,000, which was only Tk 19,000 crore. Some 90% of ADP cost now comes from government funds, she added.
