Alleging that anti- democracy and -development forces are still active at home and abroad, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday urged all to strengthen the hand of Sheikh Hasina to face these forces.
He made the call during a briefing at his official residence.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said BNP’s undemocratic behaviour and the politics of conspiracy are big barrier to flouring democracy.
As per the Democracy Index of the Economic Intelligence Unit, Bangladesh’s democracy moved four notches up.
Quader said this is a global recognition of the Sheikh Hasina government’s advancement of democracy.
He also said this recognition will expedite Sheikh Hasina’s pace towards democracy.
