Who else can achieve 'developing' status by 2026?
The people need to keep Awami League in power to make Bangladesh a developing country by 2026, said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The premier said this in parliament while participating in the discussion on the proposed budget for 2023-24 fiscal.
"Today Bangladesh has gained the status of a developing country. Who will be able to implement it if we don't come [to power again]? Show me one person who will be able to do it. Show me one person who will work selflessly for the country. If you show me such leadership, I have no objection," she said.
Hasina, also the Leader of the House, said, people need us to make the graduation of Bangladesh as a developing country.
Pointing to the country's people, the head of the government said, since the people voted Awami League to power time and again, they (the government) have been able to serve the country and bring it on the track of development.
Hasina, also the AL president, said her government has been able to reduce the poverty rate significantly.
"Today the unemployment rate is only three percent," said the PM.
