Awami League general secretary and Minister for Public Administration Syed Ashraful Islam today said conspiracies have been hatched in many ways everyday to launch attack upon Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
"Repeated attempts were launched to assassinate Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Though she escaped so far, conspiracies are on. BNP is a party of killers and conspirators. The party has always been hatching conspiracy to kill Awami League stalwarts including Sheikh Hasina," he said.
Syed Ashraful Islam said this while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion organised by Jatiya Sramik League (JSL) at Mohanagar Natya Mancha at Gulistan Square in the city marking the August 21 Grenade Attack Day.
JSL president Sukkur Mahmud chaired the discussion, also addressed, among others, by Awami League labour affairs secretary Habibur Rahman Siraj, JSL general secretary Sirajul Islam and executive president Fazlul Haque Montu. Calling upon the leaders and workers of Awami League and its associate bodies to forge a greater unity, Syed Ashraful Islam said, "We have to remain always vigilant and prepared (to face any awkward situation). You have to simply shun sharing business (of ill-gotten money) and remain united at any cost for the greater interest of the party and the country as well as Sheikh Hasina. We will be weak if we indulge in conflicts among ourselves."
"We should remain united as ever. It's true that we are in power now. But, we are not safe although we are in power. For this reason, we have to remain always vigilant," the Awami League general secretary added.
