Awami League chief and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged voters in Rangpur to elect her party once again to finish the initiatives it took in the past ten years for the development of the country.
“Vote for boat and I will ensure development and a better life,” she said on Sunday (Dec 23) while addressing an election rally at the Pirganj Govt School grounds.
“Pirganj is my own constituency. I have been elected as an MP from here twice. But as you know that one cannot be an MP in two seats, I have to vacate it and keep the seat in Tungipara (Gopalganj-3), where I was born,” said Hasina.
Hasina was elected from the Rangpur-6 seat in 2000 and 2014. After the 10th national election, Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury ran on the party’s ticket in the by-election to win it.
The Awami League has nominated Shirin as its candidate for the Dec 30 national election.
“They had opposed Bangladesh’s struggle for freedom and then again killed people by firebombing uses in the name of a movement.”
