PM attends UNGA at special invitation of UN: Hasan

Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud has said that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s daughter and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was taken to the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) by the UN and world leaders on a special invitation, reports BSS.

“The global role of the Prime Minister, the way she has led Bangladesh, the way she has taken the country to the third highest growth rate in the world by maintaining economic growth even in corona, all these world leaders want to hear from her,” Hasan, also Awami League (AL) joint general secretary, said.

The minister was responding to a question from the reporters on the BNP’s recent remarks about the Prime Minister’s participation in the UN General Assembly after virtually attending the Enayetpur Thana Awami League’s tri-annual conference in Sirajganj from his official residence in the city on Saturday afternoon as the chief guest.

He said BNP is criticizing as its leaders cannot tolerate the praise of world leaders for the development of the country.

He added that BNP leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi should have known that most of the Prime Minister’s entourage had gone at their own expense.
