I still think I am a member of the Chatro League. We used to won in the Students Parliament of City College and Commerce College students.

In the sixties, Korea's situation was worse than ours. After World War II, Korea was divided. There was no food in their houses. There was no school. Their mothers used to send their children to school by selling golden hair. After 30 years, they have became a prosperous country.

MA Salam said Kaiser was not involved in grouping. He tried to reconcile all groups. I think I could not even imagine the development that has taken place in last 11 years. For some, his achievement is being wasted. It is our failure. The right people have to be put in the right place.

Naimuddin Chowdhury said, "If the Prime Minister has to solve all the problems, why do so many ministers need? There is distance between government and party. It is not enough to be a meritorious person, but we also have to see where is the merit is being used."

Khorshed Alam Sujan said that Ataur Rahman Khan Kaiser was a Hamelin's flute. He used to wear jeans pants and cads in protest against Ershad. Lubna Harun Chowdhury said that the sacrificing leaders were there beside Bangabandhu. Their history is full of struggle.
