Newly elected Member of Parliament Sheikh Sarhan Naser Tonmoy has expressed his restlessness to start working to build a country with boundless possibilities.

Marking the third generation of MPs in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s family and one of nine members of the family who will be part of the 11th Jatiya Sangshad, Tonmoy said shortly after being administered the oath of office on Thursday, reports UNB.

“I’m very happy upon taking the oath...the promises must be kept... the words I uttered while taking the oath must count, there’re many things to learn from this parliament,” he said.

A work plan has already been prepared for the development of his constituency (Bagerhat Sadar and Kachua) as he wants to work for changing the fate of the people of his area, he said.

“I want to learn from the senior leaders of parliament. All together we’ll have to build Bangladesh, a country of possibilities. A pressure to work for the welfare of people has been built after taking oath. Now we just have to start the work of serving people,” he said.    

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has showed us the dream that we see for a Bangladesh with unlimited potentials. Lakhs of youths, like me, have seen this dream and have brought victory for Boat by casting their votes for Awami league,” said 31-year-old Tonmoy.

Tonmoy, the Awami League’s youngest candidate in the 11th national election, secured victory by bagging 221,212 votes from Bagerhat-2 constituency. He also gained popularity nationwide for his good looks and youthful campaign style – for example, insisting on being recognised not as a leader, but as a worker.

In his electoral rallies, Tonmoy promised a Bagerhat without drugs, corruption, extortion and terrorism. 

Meanwhile, the people of Bagerhat -2 constituency want to see Tonmoy inducted in the cabinet.

By way of education, after completing his third standard in his homeland, Tonmoy left for boarding school in India in 1987. He then completed O and A levels in Dhaka.

During the emergency regime in 2007, again he went to India and returned in 2012. He went to London in 2015 for higher studies.   

A married man, Tonmoy also worked for a company in Singapore.

He formally joined party politics in 2017 and secured a landmark victory in the election.
