Oikyafront’s JS boycott politically wrong: Hasina tells parliament

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday remarked that the parliament boycott of Jatiya Oikyafront including BNP, Gano Forum is a politically wrong decision.
The Leader of the House at the same time made a call to them to join the parliament forgetting their sulk and to represent the people of their constituencies raising their voice. Responding to a question from Jatiya Party lawmaker Fakhrul Imam, the Prime Minister said, if they (MPs-elect of BNP and Gano Forum) join the Jatiay Sangsad, they will get a scope to speak in the House.

She said if they speak in the parliament their words will be spread among all the countrymen through live broadcast as JS proceedings are directly broadcast through media including Sangsad Television.

Pointing at Oikyafront, Sheikh Hasina said, "Those who secured few seats contesting the general election are not coming to parliament making huff. I think they have taken a politically wrong decision. Because people are the owners of votes and they have the right to cast their votes according to their choice, and they have voted in this way," she said.

On the pre-election dialogues, the AL President said, "We wanted that all will work unitedly to build Bangladesh. So before the election, I invited all political parties to a dialogue so that they take part in the elections." The Prime Minister said the talks were held later in a beautiful environment.
She told the parliament that heads of state and government as well as chiefs of different international bodies totalling 97 countries and organisations have so far extended their heartfelt congratulations to her for landslide victory of the AL in the last general election and on being elected the prime minister for the fourth time.

On the reason of landslide victory, Sheikh Hasina said as the people could reap the fruits of development in the last 10 years during the tenure of the AL, they took a decision much earlier to vote her party to power again.
She repeated her pledge to build Bangladesh as the most developed, prosperous and peaceful country in South Asia.

"As long as I remain alive, I will continue work for the development and progress of the country Insha Allah," she said. Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh as an independent and self-dignified country will maintain good relations with other countries of the world in the days to come. The premier said Awami League government's unprecedented success in different indexes of socioeconomic development for 10 years has established Bangladesh as a role model of development in the world.

"This has been possible due to our people-friendly policy and implementation of the programmes as well as hard labour and cooperation of the people for it I extend my sincere thanks to the countrymen," she said.
In reply to another question from Fakhrul Imam, the Prime Minister expressed her desire again to live at her ancestral village after the retirement from politics, saying that her mind always remains at the beloved village bedecked with its green, and beautiful environment.

"I grew up at the village by mixing mud, climbing trees and playing games at one stage, moved to the town but the love for village never erased. My mind always stays at my village," she said. Describing the village as the heart, the Prime Minister said her government has taken a plan to provide civic amenities to the rural people as she does not like moving of the rural people to towns after their condition improves to some extent.
