Farooq Ahmed, Director General of BTV. Md. Jahangir Alam, Director General of the Press Institute Zafar Wazed and Director General of the Directorate of Mass Communication. Nizamul Kabir attended the event as an invited guest.

Noting that not only material but also spiritual development of people is very necessary for ethnic development, Hasan Mahmud said, ‘We are not economically poor anymore, but we are behind many. But we are ahead of many in terms of social and family ties, values. Besides, Prime Minister Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina has introduced various types of allowances including old age allowance, widow allowance, husband desertion allowance, maternity allowance for the poor population with the aim of creating a social state. In this way, we want to transform the country into a humanitarian, social welfare state, where the state will take responsibility for all the downtrodden and the poor.’

Information and Broadcasting Minister said, ‘Today, Bangladesh is moving forward under the leadership of leader Sheikh Hasina, leaving behind all the adversities. Now we are the 35th economy in the world in terms of GDP and 31st in terms of PPP. By 2030, Bangladesh will transform into a 25th or 27th economy. We could have taken this development progress much further if there were no destructive, negative, rumour-mongering politics in the country, because they have slowed down the progress of the country. Today people, cars and horses are being burnt, train lines are being cut, trains are being set on fire in the name of politics. These are not political activities, but terrorist activities.’

Hasan Mahmud said, this terrorism in the name of politics has hindered our development progress and is doing so. So if the country has to be taken to the destination of dreams then this terrorism in the name of politics must be stopped forever. We are determined to stop it. So today on Victory Day we all need to pledge to eradicate this negative, destructive politics from the country forever.

The way BNP-Jamaat hacked a policeman to death in the name of strike, blockade, rally, burnt a driver-helper, beat journalists, burnt vehicles, attacked a police hospital and torched 19 vehicles including an ambulance, defied even the most brutal scenario of a movie. These are not politics, it would be wrong to call them non-politics. Nowhere in the world has there been such brutality in the name of politics, which is being done by BNP-Jamaat. They are enemies of the country, enemies of the society, enemies of the state. We all have to resist them.’

By uprooting all the conspiracies ahead of the election, the election environment has been created in the country today, enthusiasm has been created, we can present a beautiful election in the country with the massive participation of the people.’
