At a time that when EU Election Exploratory Mission is holding meetings with different political parties in the country to make ready for the 2019 general elections, business leaders banded together to express their support for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's continued tenure in government.
At an event on Saturday, entrepreneurs told Hasina that they wanted to see her as the next prime minister of Bangladesh.
Speaking at the Business Conference on Building Smart Bangladesh organised by the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce & Industries (FBCCI) in the capital, the organisation's president Jashim Uddin lauded the role of PM Hasina – who was present at the event – in continuing Bangladesh's march towards development.
"The way you have taken the country forward…to hold on to this position and solve our problems, we want you with us," he said.
He said the business leaders were united in their demand to solve all problems under the leadership of the PM.
"We need your leadership. We want you to see you again as the prime minister of Bangladesh," he said.
The FBCCI president said the businesses were proud and grateful as Hasina always responded to their call.
He also said the problems currently plaguing businesses – especially the energy and dollar crises – were all mitigated due to Hasina's leadership.
