Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said on Friday those who are busy with plotting against the country and the nation even after fifty years of independence should be rooted out.
“Bangladesh achieved independence under the leadership of Bangabandhu. And now, the country got the final recommendation for transition to a developing nation from least developed country (LDC) status under the leadership of Bangabandhu’s worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” he said.“This is our big achievement during the golden jubilee of independence,” he told reporters after placing wreath at the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Dhanmondi 32 in the capital.
The minister said Bangladesh is now a food surplus country. “Bangladesh is now a role model before the world. And, the achievement has been possible only for the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
But, he said, the anti-liberation forces are still hatching conspiracies against the independence, sovereignty, culture and heritage. “On the day of golden jubilee of independence, this is our pledge that the anti-liberation forces should be eradicated from the country,” he added.
