Prime Minister and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina today said it was not possible to topple her government and push the country to darkness again as the people are in favour of them.

"They (BNP-Jamaat) are dreaming to oust the Awami League (AL) government. How did they forget that Awami League always stands beside the people, for which, they cast vote for the party repeatedly," she said.

The premier was presiding over a discussion marking the 104th birth anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Children's Day-2024 organised by the AL at its Dhaka district unit office in the city's Tejgaon area.

She said the BNP has been arranging iftar parties during the month of Ramadan instead of distributing it among the poor, alongside criticising the government and wanting election under the caretaker government.

But, the AL, its associate bodies and its elected representatives have been distributing iftar items among the poor across the country without holding iftar parties, she said.

"The countrymen are supporting the Awami League as they always find it beside them during their need," she added.

The BNP-Jamaat clique wants to overthrow Awami League from power, the premier said.

She asked: "Why do they want to oust Awami League government? What crime it commits? Is it a crime to make Bangladesh independent? Is it crime to stand beside the people or work to transform Bangladesh into developed and prosperous country?"

She reminded the BNP and its allies that people are always bedside the AL as they knew very well that they had got everything including independence and development during its tenure.
