Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has alerted the countrymen about conspiracies of the anti-liberation forces to turn Bangladesh into a failed state, asserting that the plots of the “Pakistani-lovers” will never be successful.
“The collaborators of the Pakistani occupation forces and those who still love Pakistan are out to foil Bangladesh’s hard-earned independence and turn the country into a failed state. But we will not allow their conspiracies to be successful,” she said.

Awami League organized the discussion on the occasion of the 49th Victory Day.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, said Bangladesh earned independence in exchange for blood of millions of martyrs. “They joined the Liberation War responding to the call of Bangabandhu, and struggled throughout their life for this independence … their sacrifice cannot go in vain,” she said.
The premier said Bangladesh fought and won the Liberation War against Pakistan. “Our goal was that we will remain above Pakistan anyhow on all sides including economic, social, and cultural fronts,” she said.
She went on saying: “We are in a better position than everybody else. We must keep up this success.”
The prime minister said wherever the Pakistani-lovers stay – in jail or abroad – their plots will be there.
