PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday asked the public representatives to win the hearts of people as well as attain their trust and confidence to have the opportunity to serve them repeatedly.

“You’re the public representatives as people cast their votes. You have to win their trust and confidence…you’ve responsibilities and duties to them,” she said.

The Prime Minister was speaking at the oath-taking ceremony of the newly-elected Mayor of Mymensingh City Corporation Ekramul Haque Titu and its 44 new ward councilors, including councillors from reserved seats at her office.

Sheikh Hasina said if anyone does politics to gain personal interests that politics cannot be sustainable or bring anything good for people.

“If you work for people, in the interest of people and if you can win their hearts, then you’ll see people putting their trust and confidence in you, and they’ll repeatedly give you the opportunity to serve them,” she said.

Sheikh Hasina, also the chief of the ruling Awami League, expressed her profound gratitude to the people of the country for giving her another chance to serve them.

The goal of the government, she said, is to materialise the aim of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to turn the country into Golden Bengal.
