No one can block Bangladesh’s march forward: Hasina


Dhaka-Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said no one will be able to thwart the pace of the country’s development by unleashing militancy.“Those dreaming of frustrating Bangladesh’s development pace through unleashing militancy won’t be successful Insha Allah, as the power of people is the ultimate strength,” she said.
Sheikh Hasina came up with the remarks while talking to the officials of Benapole Land Port, customs officials, elected representatives and official of local administration and law enforcement agencies through videoconferencing after inaugurating the integrated check post (ICP) at Benapole-Petrapole point of India-Bangladesh border.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi jointly opened the ICP infrastructures this afternoon through videoconferencing from Dhaka and New Delhi respectively.
Sheikh Hasina joined the videoconferencing from her official residence Ganobhaban here while Narendra Modi from his New Delhi office. Besides, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee joined it from her Kolkata office.
Hasina vowed to free the country and nation from the hands of evil forces by eliminating terrorism and militancy. “As people have now awakened and they’re united against terrorism and militancy, it’s my firm belief we’ll be able to free the country and nation from the hands of evil forces.”
She said when Bangladesh is marching towards development and prosperity and has been recognised as a development role model, ill efforts are being made to impede it progress through unleashing terrorism and militancy. “Why should we allow this evil design … we must contain it,” she said, urging all to give attention to it and stay careful.
Hasina said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reassured India’s unflinching support to Bangladesh strides to fight terrorism.
“There’ll be cooperation that the two countries would never give shelter to any terrorist, and no terrorist be allowed to take shelter to other country after committing crimes in their own country,” she said.
