As she addressed the officials and employees of the Prime Minister’s Office on the last working day of her current tenure, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said she feels proud of being the daughter of the Father of the Nation not the premier.
“I feel proud of being a daughter of the Father of the Nation, not the prime minister … I don’t think about how I will enjoy the post, rather it’s a matter of consideration to me that how much I can engage myself in the people’s welfare,” she told the officials and employees at the PMO here this afternoon, reports BSS.
Sheikh Hasina termed the Prime Minister’s Office as a very important place for the government and reminded the public servants about their responsibilities.
“Whether I stay (in power) or not, there will be an appeal to you that you will discharge your duties with utmost sincerity as you’re the public servants,” she said.
The premier added: “Your salary and allowances come from the taxes paid by the common people. So, it’s your responsibilities to serve them and do their welfare.”
