Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the people to vote for the Awami League again in the next parliamentary elections to continue with development.
She made the call while addressing a rally on Sunday at Santahar in Bogra, the district of Ziaur Rahman, the founder of the BNP.
"There will be no development if the BNP-Jamaat alliance comes to power. Everything will stop," she said.
Speaking about the development projects taken by her government in past eight years, Hasina said, "Government's continuity is a must to maintain growth."
Comparing the tenure of the Awami League with that of the BNP, she said, "The people get something only when Bangabandhu's party comes to power. Otherwise, they are deprived."
Hasina thanked the people of Santahar for electing Awami League candidates in local government polls.
The prime minister also inaugurated the Nandigram Upazila Complex Extension Building and Hall, the Shahjahanpur Thana and Education for Visual Disabilities building and the Shibganj Upazila Freedom Fighters Complex.
