Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said her government has taken responsibility for running the state to take Bangladesh to a more dignified position by making it self-reliant in every aspect particularly socioeconomically.

“We have shouldered the responsibility of running the state to take Bangladesh to a more dignified position by achieving self-reliance socioeconomically without seeking help from others,” she said while virtually addressing as the chief guest the “Swadhinata Purashkar-2020” (Independence Award-2020) handing over ceremony from her official Ganabhaban residence, reports BSS.

The Cabinet Division organised the function from Osmani Memorial Auditorium here this morning.

The Prime Minister added: “We are a victorious nation as we had achieved independence through the Liberation War defeating the Pakistani occupation forces and their local collaborators. As a victorious nation we will move around the world with keeping our heads high with due dignity. We will not seek any help from others like baggers as we have to stand on our own feet.”

To achieve dignity, Sheikh Hasina said her government has been untiringly working to reach healthcare service and power to every house, ensure education for all, develop the communication system, provide house to every homeless and landless people and make the countrymen self-reliant economically.

The premier said Bangladesh had lost the possibility of achieving the dignity with the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on August 15 in 1975.

But, assuming office after 21 years, the Awami League has once again started its journey towards making Bangladesh a “Sonar Bangla” envisioned by Father of the Nation, she said.

Sheikh Hasina congratulated the recipients of the Independence Award-2020 saying the government has given the award this year to those personalities, who have immense contribution to independence as well as the country’s socio- economic advancement.
