“The daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Sheikh Hasina, who is the celebrated leader of the mass people and a prominent politician in the international world, is going to be the prime minister for the fourth time as we reelected her unanimously the leader of our parliamentary party,” Awami League Advisory Council Member Tofail Ahmed told reporters emerging from the maiden meeting of the Awami League Parliamentary Party (ALPP) held at Sangsad Bhaban this afternoon, reports said.
