Initiatives have been taken to plant about 1,000 trees at Suhrawardy Udyan as part of the implementation of the master plan to preserve the memory of the Liberation War.

Md. Habibul Islam, joint secretary to the government and project director of the construction of Swadhinata Smriti Stambha at Udyan (Phase-III), informed the media on Saturday. 

“Shikha Chirantan (Eternal Flame), Swadhinata Stambha, and underground Liberation War Museum have been constructed at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan under the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs to present the true history of the Great Liberation War to the future generations and the world,” he said.

A master plan titled “Construction of Swadhinata Stambha at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka (Phase 3)” is being implemented to preserve the correct history of the Great Liberation War in Suhrawardy Udyan, to build an international medium in the modern green environment and to attract domestic and foreign tourists.

Md. Habibul Islam added that there is no environment for family members to visit Suhrawardy Udyan. There is no environment to enter the park on one side and exit safely on the other side. There are a lot of vagabonds and ambitious people here. “We want to make the whole park an international standard through a master plan.” 

In order to implement this great deed, there is confusion among many people as “fragmented information” has been spread in various media about cutting down some trees in the garden, he said.

The government’s joint secretary added that about 1,000 trees will be planted in the park in the coming monsoon season. Throughout the year, tree planting activities have been planned to keep flowers in one of the trees in the garden and to give people a sense of wandering.
