Rangunia Upazila Awami League organized this procession in more than 300 vehicles, hundreds of leaders and workers of parties and organizations and ordinary people participated.
Dr. Hasan said, ‘A worker does eight hours on duty and I give 16 to 20 hours. Waking up at eight in the morning and no sleep until two at night. As a shepherd, I do as much as your child.’
He said, ‘I request you, keep in mind the amount of development that has taken place in Rangunia and Boalkhali. On the 7th, they will go to the polling center with their mothers and sisters, wives, children and grandchildren, those who wanted to abstain from voting, we will put black ink on their faces by voting on boat marks, inshallah.’
Regarding the development of the country, he said, the success of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s creation of the country and his daughter leader Sheikh Hasina’s management of the country is that today Pakistan looks at us and sighs, Pakistan now wants to be Bangladesh.
Highlighting the development of his constituency Rangunia Upazila and Boalkhali, the Information Minister said, ‘The entire Bangladesh has changed today under the leadership of People’s Leader Sheikh Hasina. 15 years ago it used to take morning to afternoon to go from one end of North Rangunia to another. Had to take potla along. The roads were in such deplorable condition that people’s backs hurt. And now any destination can be reached in maximum one hour.’
