Work to meet people’s expectations: PM to new cabinet

MNA National Desk: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has asked the new cabinet to work with sincerity and honesty to fulfil the expectations of people who have voted Awami League to power again with a huge mandate.

“The cabinet will work with sincerity and honesty, every work has to be performed with sincerity…this has to be kept in mind,” she said in her introductory speech at the maiden cabinet meeting of her newly formed government at the Prime Minister Office (PMO) in Dhaka city on Monday morning.

The prime minister said there are responsibilities and duties of the government towards the people of the country who sent Awami League (AL) to power for the third consecutive term.

“We’re here to perform that duty, and the power of honesty is infinity…we’ve been able to prove that several times,” she said.

Sheikh Hasina, also the chief of the ruling Awami League, said the country will advance if the cabinet works with sincerity and honesty.

She mentioned that the people of the country have many expectations from the newly formed government and the government has to fulfil that. “Fulfilling the expectations of people is our task.”

The prime minister said the dream of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was to bring smiles on the faces of distressed people, UNB reported.

“That’s also our aim. We’ll work with that desire…we’ll fulfil that desire, we’ll build Bangladesh as a country that will be free from hunger and poverty,” she said.

Sheikh Hasina said the development works that the AL initiated in its previous two terms have to be taken forward in the coming days.

“We’ve to advance the country as per the expectations of people.”
