FARIDPUR, Feb, 14, 2014(BSS)- Overseas Employment and Expatriate Welfare Minister Engineer Khondoker Mosharraf Hossain called upon the Bangladesh Chattra League(BCL) workers to remain united to face any challenge on way to prosperity and development of the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The Minister was addressing here yesterday afternoon as the chief guest at the workers conference of Faridpur district BCL held at Ambica memorial ground. Mosharraf said that BCL is the source of the political strength of Awami League and has been waging many successful historical movements from the great language movement of 1952.

In an oblique reference to BNP the Minister said that to call a movement against the government will be a futile exercise as their own 'house' has become fragile and may collapse any moment. So it is better to keep their own house intact otherwise you would be blown away in the air. The BCL members are enough to face the destructive activities of the parties opposing the government, he said. 

The Minister also called upon the BCL activists to remain vigilant against the vandalism and violence programs of the anti- government parties during upazilla polls.

He called upon the BCL workers to unitedly support party nominated candidates in the upcoming upazilla election to help continuation of the development process in rural areas.

The workers conference presided over by District BCL president Monir Hossain Monir was addressed among others by Awami League advisory council member SM Nurunnabi, Awami League leaders Kh. Mohtesham Hossain Babor, Mokerrem Mia Babu, KM Selim and BCL District Committee secretary Satyajit Mukharjee. 

In the conference Kh. Mohtesham Hossain Babor was declared as the chairman candidate while the names Shamshul Alom Chowdhury as the vice-chairman and Farida Yasmin as the woman vice-chairman were declared. 

In the evening Minister attended a function of Spring Festival as the chief guest held at Swadhinata Chattar organized by Faridpur Rabindra Sangit Sammilony Parishad.
