Talking about coronavirus and vaccine, the prime minister said Bangladesh attained a considerable success in facing the pandemic. “With the arrival of the vaccine, it [govt] has gained power to face the virus with a greater strength.”
Regarding the contributions of the Father of the Nation, Hasina said there had been frantic efforts to erase the name of Bangabandhu from Bangladesh history after 15 August, 1975.
"Even they tried to erase the name and contribution of Bangabandhu from the Independence and Language Movement," she said.
Hasina said Ziaur Rahman, HM Ershad and Khaleda Zia destroyed many archives both at Bangladesh Television and Bangladesh Betar.
She said Bangabandhu wanted to build a country that would be free from poverty and hunger.
"But he couldn’t do that. So, it’s our responsibility to finish his unfinished task, and we’re taking Bangladesh forward in that direction," she said.
