A people’s leader

There are conjectures flying around about conspiracies to oust Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina from power. This does not come as a surprise. We cannot forget the grenade attack that she narrowly survived. That day, Sheikh Hasina was reborn, to fulfil the unfulfilled dreams of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangladesh is fortunate to have her as its strong and fearless leader.

In her fourth term as prime minister, she has taken popular steps to uproot corruption from the society. Therefore, it is only natural that those whose ill intents are being thwarted will be desperate. These people will try to embarrass the government at home and abroad. There have been many attempts to destabilise the country and also thwart the country’s ongoing development.

From time to time vested interest quarters give rise to untoward incidents to embarrass the country and the Prime Minister. It is difficult to keep track of all the enemies of the state at once and influence them to reform. Most of the time, their ill motivated attempts only create some ripple in the placid water of the nation. But sometimes they succeed in creating major upheavals in our national life. The killing of the brilliant BUET student is one such connivance.

Now some vested interest quarters are trying to create a gap between the PM and the students by spreading rumours. They should know that at such times of crisis previously our PM has shown her mettle at unique leadership skills. Those who are trying to cash in on the protests should know that the heart of the PM belongs to the country and the people. And the people are looking towards her to take the country forward in the right direction, advancing the country’s economic growth despite a global recession.

People’s leader kept people’s desire in mind, as Sheikh Hasina formed the present cabinet, dropping many controversial leaders. Those who are trying to pit the leader against her people should know that the people and the leader stand together to fight the conspirators against the country.
