Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will make a televised address to the nation on Friday evening marking the completion of four years of her government.
In her address, the Prime Minister is expected to highlight the successes and efforts of her government in different spheres in the last four years as the Awami League-led Grand Alliance government steps into the last leg of its five-year term.
Hasina had been addressing the nation in the first week of January every year since her party formed government in 2009. She addressed the nation on Jan 5 last year, Jan 6, 2011 and Jan 6, 2010.
Last Sunday, the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant (Media) Mahbubul Haque Shakil told bdnews24.com that she was closely monitoring her government’s activities in the last four years and evaluation of those activities by different quarters.
“In a few days she will address the nation highlighting the measures her government has taken.”
“The Prime Minister believes in accountability. Even in her illness, she is observing how the people of the country are evaluating the four years of her government’s tenure,” said Shakil.
The Prime Minister changed her regular activities scheduled for Jan 6 as she has been down with a bout of seasonal influenza.
Hasina, also the President of the ruling Awami League, was sworn in as Prime Minister on Jan 6, 2009 after the alliance she leads swept the parliamentary elections in December 2008.
The Grand Alliance government assumed office on Jan 6 with a vision to bring about changes and turn Bangladesh a digital country by 2021.
