‘I am ready to die for you’: Ivy
Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC) Awami League mayoral candidate in the election Dr. Selina Hayat Ivy said Narayanganj has seen a lot of development in the last five years. You must maintain its continuity. I toured every ward. The soil and the people said boat only boat. I will request the people of Narayanganj to give me a chance for another five years. Many things can happen at any time. I am willing to accept death for you. I did not look at the world. I hope you will not give return me empty handed.
She made the remarks at a road rally on behalf of the ‘boat’ at Railgate No. 2 in Narayanganj on Friday (January 14) afternoon.
Ivy said, this is the base of Narayanganj Awami League, the base of the people. Awami League was born at Paikpara Mutual Club in Narayanganj. But this city was polluted. That's why the leader gave me the ‘boat’.
"My father was an Awami League activist," she said. He had worked for the welfare of the people. He was the leader of the land and the people. He taught me that Allah exists among human beings. Allah is found only by serving people. I have worked for you for a long time.
Ivy said the leader nominated me when there was no one in town. I was elected in 2011. You defeated my opponent by a margin of one lakh votes. You did the same thing in 2016. This boat is Ivy's boat, Victory’s boat, Bangabandhu's boat. No one has the power to stop this boat.
"I am grateful to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the president of the Awami League," she said. She handed the boat over to me. I am also grateful to the leaders of Awami League for standing by me against terrorism. My leaders have understood the minds of the people of Narayanganj, they know what the people say.
