Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday asked AL leaders and activists to stand by flood-hit people.
She made the call while delivering her introductory speech at a joint meeting of Awami League Advisory Council and Central Working Committee at her official residence Ganobhaban.
On flood preparation, Sheikh Hasina said the government was aware of the situation as it had been collecting information from different parts of the country.
"There's no laxity," she said. She also said everyone knows about his duties and responsibilities.
The AL President said, "For retaining the status of developing country, we mostly need political power, we need the organization and we need supports from
people," she said.
She said the main strength of the government to put Bangladesh in the current position lies in support of people.
"The way Bangladesh is advancing, I think, we need a much stronger organization," she said.
"We've to take preparation and advance the country step by step. We've to put back all our hurdles, for we need to make our party strong organizationally and we need to create public opinion," she said.
She said the government in the last ten years had continued the trend of development.
"We have never stumbled on our way to development or we have never lagged behind. We have advanced the country step by step in a steady way. This is the most important thing," she said.
Coming down heavily on a section of people, the Prime Minister said these people always see the government's works in a negative way.
"They don't want the continuation of democratic practices," she said.
The AL President said the government never neglects the people. "We want to remain as friends of people in their well and woes and work for their welfare. This is our principle and for that reason, we could advance the country," she said.
She also mentioned that Bangladesh may not be a country like the developed ones people will be able to get rid of poverty and their lives will be beautiful.
"Their aims will be fulfilled. We want to build the country that way," she said.
