Desk Report :: President Mohammad called on the government and the opposition to play a proper role in the parliament. Abdul Hamid.
He said the national parliament is the center of hopes and aspirations of the people of the country.

The ruling party as well as the opposition have to play a constructive role in transparency, accountability, tolerance, consolidation of human rights and rule of law and progress of the nation.

In order to build the ‘Golden Bengal’ of Bangabandhu’s dream, we have to work more unitedly to eradicate corruption, drugs, terrorism and militancy from the country by keeping the spirit of the liberation war high. Let us forget the differences of party-like-path and pay the blood debt of millions of martyrs by establishing a society free from exploitation irrespective of religion-caste-tribe.
“We are on the threshold of the golden jubilee of independence today,” he added. We have to move forward on the path of peace, democracy, development and prosperity. This year, as a middle-income country, we will celebrate the golden jubilee of independence. Our goal is to be inaugurated as a developed and prosperous country in the World Assembly in 2041. I firmly believe that under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, with the full participation of the people, we will be able to build a welfare, developed and prosperous Bangladesh.
