Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today sought the vote from the young generation for Awami League in the upcoming elections to keep up the pace of development, terming them as the biggest strength of the country.

“Bangladesh witnessed tremendous development in the last 10 years of the present government. We seek the vote from the young generation who are our biggest strength to continue the country’s development spree,” she said, according to BSS report.

The prime minister said this while inaugurating 66 Sheikh Russel Mini Stadiums in 66 upazilas, youth training centres in six districts, a multi- sports indoor complex at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Pratisthan (BKSP) and 73 youth and sports establishments in 38 districts through a videoconference from her official Ganabhaban residence this afternoon.

Sheikh Hasina categorically said that there will be no hunger and poverty in the country if Awami League is voted to power again in the upcoming general elections.

“If people cast their votes for Boat, the election symbol of Awami League and if we get the chance to serve the country through forming the government, I can tell you, without any hesitation, there’ll be no hunger and poverty by 2020,” she said.

She mentioned that the government has been able to reduce the poverty to 21 percent and will be able to cut more in the coming days.

Sheikh Hasina said the nation will celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the golden jubilee of our independence as a hunger and poverty-free country.

“We’ll take the country forward further towards development … we’re working for overall uplift of the country including development of communication system,” she said.

Besides, she said, the government always gives importance to the sports and youth development.

The premier asked the youths to utilise their talents and thoughts for overall development of the country. “We hope they will make fresh thinking for the rapid development of the country,” she said.
