President wishes PM long life, sound health on her birthday
President M Abdul Hamid last night wished long life, sound health, and continued wellbeing of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the occasion of her 75th birthday.
"I extend my heartiest greetings and warm congratulations to Bangladesh Awami League President and Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina," he said in a message.
Under her dynamic leadership, Bangladesh today graduated to the status of developing nation from the list of least developed countries (LDCs), he said.
Abdul Hamid said that mega projects like Padma Bridge, Karnaphuli Tunnel, Metro Rail and Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant are being implemented.
She set a bright example in the history of humanity by giving shelter to millions of forcibly displaced and persecuted Rohingya people from Myanmar, he said, adding that because of her generosity, Sheikh Hasina has been dubbed as "Mother of Humanity".
In continuation of the successful implementation of Vision 2021, Sheikh Hasina has taken Vision 2041 and Delta Plan 2100 to turn the country into "Sonar Bangla" as dreamt by Bangabandhu, he said.
Though the world economy faced negative impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, Bangladesh has been able to keep the economic growth because of the time-befitting and courageous steps of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he said.
He said that works are going on to bring all citizens of the country under the coverage of vaccination.
With her political wisdom, prudence, dynamic leadership, humanitarian values, she established herself as one of the best statesmen not only in the country but also in the world, he said.
