Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday sought everybody’s vote for her party to ensure a beautiful future for the posterity, keeping up the country’s development spree.
“Every vote and seat are valuable and your one vote will help us form the government . . . shortage of a single seat could bar the reinstallation of our party to the government,” she told a wayside rally at Bhanga intersection in Faridpur this morning.
The premier added: “So cast your vote for ‘boat’ to ensure our victory so we can keep up the continuity of the country’s development”.
AL candidate of Faridpur-4 constituency (Bhanga-Sadarpur-Charbhadrasan) Kazi Zafarrullah also addressed the rally, while Bangabandhu’s younger daughter Sheikh Rehana was present.
Sheikh Hasina was on her way to Dhaka from Tungipara as part of the party’s second day of election campaign.
“If Awami League doesn’t return to power, the construction work of the Padma Bridge Project will be halted. So, a single vote is also valuable for us to continue the uplift works,” she said.
In this connection, the AL president said, her government in 2001 laid the foundation stone of the bridge. “But, after coming to power, the BNP-Jamaat government stopped the work of the bridge,” she said.
“Many leaders will try to misguide you by speaking about different issues. But, you will have to cast your vote by own and guard the polling centres by creating public opinion,” the AL president told the people at the rally.
Later, the prime minister addressed a rally on the Komarpur Abdul Aziz Institute premises in Faridpur.
On her way to Dhaka, she will also address five more rallies at Rajbari intersection, Manikganj bus stand, Rabeya Medical College and Hospital premises in Dhamrai and Savar bus stand.
Earlier in the day, Sheikh Hasina started her journey around 9:04 am by road from Tungipara.
Before starting her journey, she recited from the holy Quran and offered munajat at the shrine of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
On Wednesday, the Awami League president launched her party’s election campaign by placing wreaths at the shrine of Bangabandhu in Tungipara. She also addressed a public rally at Sheikh Lutfar Rahman Government Degree College ground in Kotalipara.-BSS
