Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina says the country’s uplift has become visible as her Awami League-led government continues to stay in state power.
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia says that the human rights index in Bangladesh has gone “below the zero” as the Awami League-led government is “indulged in repressive and undemocratic rules”.
Information Minister Hasanul Huq Inu says both newspapers and electronic media are now enjoying “full freedom” under the Sheikh Hasina-led present government.
The ruling Awami League calls upon the United States not to interfere in Bangladesh's internal affairs including the trial of war criminals.
BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir alleges that the government has completed its preparation to run the country under "one-party administration".
