Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha . Dhaka

The prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, has called upon leaders and workers of the Awami League and others who believe in the spirit of the Liberation War to be united so that 1/11 does not come again in Bangladesh and none could capture the state power unconstitutionally.
‘The leaders and workers of the party will have to remain more vigil so that none could play ducks and drakes with the fate of the people,’ she said.
Hasina urged the countrymen to remain alert so that the plunderers, money launderers and militants do not come to power.
She expressed her firm determination to build Bangladesh, which earned independence in exchange for the blood of three million martyrs, in the spirit of the War of Liberation.
Criticising the leader of the opposition for her role in unleashing violent acts in the name of movement, the prime minister said, the BNP leader joining hand with Jamaat-Shibir and Hefajat-e-Islam wanted to destabilise the country through various ways.
She said this in her introductory speech at an exchange of views with grassroots leaders of Madaripur district unit of her party at her official Ganabhaban residence in the Thursday morning.

AL organising secretary Ahmad Hossain conducted the meeting which was convened as part of a series of view exchange meetings with the grassroots-level leaders and workers initiated by the ruling Awami League at the end of the year 2011.
Hasina said BNP-Jamaat elements were killing people and cutting thousands of trees in the name of movement.
‘But they are not getting any response from the people and I want to know from the opposition leader that what offences the trees did?’ she said.
In this context, she mentioned that BNP and Jamaat activists along with Hefajat followers burnt hundreds of copies of the holy Qur’an on May 5 adding that such heinous crime never happened in the past.
Hasina called upon the countrymen to resist those who are cheating with the common people in the name of Islam.
She said, with the patronisation of the BNP leader, her party and Jamaat-Shibir activists began vandalism by setting fire to buses, trains and killing innocent people including bus and CNG drivers.
the BNP and the Jamaat is engaged in the killing of leaders and workers of Bangladesh Awami League and its associate bodies to create an unstable situation in the country.
In this connection, the prime minister criticised the role of some newspapers, saying that those newspapers were trying to brand the leaders and workers of the Awami League and its associate organisations who were being killed by BNP-Jamaat cadres as terrorists.
‘The terrorists of the BNP and the Jamaat-e-Islami are killing the leaders and workers of Bangladesh Awami League and its associate bodies in a planned way to create an unstable situation in the country. And some newspapers are trying to brand the victims as terrorists,’ she said.
