Own Correspondent, Dhaka, Sept 26: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called upon the Bangladeshi diaspora to give a befitting reply to the propaganda against the government and Bangladesh.

She urged Bangladesh to show the real picture of the unprecedented development of the country during the period of the Awami League government and hold the dignity and respect that Bangladesh has achieved in the world and walk with its head held high.

Addressing a virtual reception for Bangladeshi expatriates in the US on Saturday (September 24) from her hotel in New York, she said, "Give an immediate befitting reply to the propaganda against us."

The Prime Minister said, besides the relatives of the war criminals and the murderers of the Father of the Nation, various criminals including money launderers who fled the country are behind this propaganda.

She said that most of those who are spreading misinformation on social media have been fired from their jobs or have fled the country for their involvement in misdeeds.

The Prime Minister called upon the public to highlight the character and misdeeds of those who are giving false and fabricated information about the government and Bangladesh using social media.

She said, "Don't listen to their words, but put our development in front of the people."

Sheikh Hasina urged the Bangladeshi diaspora to advance the development activities of her government in all areas.

She said, "Keep in touch with the congressmen, senators, and elected representatives of your area about the development of Bangladesh."

The Prime Minister said that the BNP-Jamaat alliance and the Awami League government can judge how much development has been achieved by looking at the comparative picture of the budget size. During the BNP period, the budget size was only Tk 60,000 thousand crore. The last budget of the Awami League government was more than Tk 6 lakh crore.

She reiterated the call to expatriate Bangladeshis to walk around the world keeping the image of Bangladesh intact and said, "I call upon all of you to uphold the status and respect that Bangladesh has now achieved in the world."
