Prime Minister and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina on Sunday once again sought vote for her party's election symbol boat to save the country and its people from the fury of the killers and war criminals.
"We want your blessings and cooperation so that the war criminals and killers can't play ducks and drakes with the fate of Bangladeshi people after coming to power again," she said.
The prime minister was addressing as the chief guest a grand rally of thousands that turned into a human sea
at the historical Polo Ground in Chittagong Sunday afternoon.
"Before leaving, I want a promise from you that you will vote for boat in the next election as you did in the past and give us the scope to serve you. Raise your hand and say you will vote for the boat," she said.
The prime minister said all should be united for that reason as the Jamaat-BNP, the political parties of war criminals, killers and patrons of the killers of the Father of the Nation still do politics on the soil of Bangladesh and they may come to power again.
At the grand rally organised by the Chittagong city, north and south district units of the AL, Sheikh Hasina also inaugurated 29 development projects and laid foundation stones of six other schemes to ensure overall development of Chittagong and described those as gifts from her government.
After inaugurating and laying foundation stones of the projects, she said: "All these development projects are gifts from mine," adding that the Awami League is the only government which has carried out tremendous development of the port city.
