Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the party was formed to put a smile on the faces of the people of Bengal.

“Whenever Awami League came in power, it has given something to people. Bangabandhu has worked to change the fate of the country's helpless people," she said on Friday.

Addressing Awami League's 21st National Council, Sheikh Hasina said: "The people of this country were below the poverty line. They did not have food to eat, were homeless and had no educational system. They were exploited and deprived.

"The sole purpose of the Father of the Nation was to improve their condition. He made the country independent, and people also responded to his call for independence."

The prime minister said: "I respect those who established Awami League. Awami League was born with an aim to ensure human rights.”

She added that the party was not established by those holding power, but by the masses.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the council held at Suhrawardy Udyan around 3pm by hoisting the national flag.

At the same time, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader also hoisted the party flag, while the national anthem was being played.
