The day’s programmes will include hoisting national and party flags at party offices at 6.30 am, placing of wreath at the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Dhanmondi road-32 at 7.00 am, cutting of cake at 8.00am at Dhaka University Curzon Hall.

A voluntary blood donation campaign will be held on January 6 at 10.00am at Bottola besides Aparajeya Bangla in Dhaka University and educational materials would be distributed among students on January 7 at 10.00am. Besides, winter clothes will be distributed among the destitutes at 4 pm on January 7 in front of Swoparjito Swadhinata Sculpture at Dhaka University.
The BCL has been leading all democratic and progressive movements in the country since its foundation in 1948. This organization attained victory in all struggles in exchange of great sacrifices.
The BCL played pioneering roles in the language movement in 1952, in the victory of Jukta Front in 1954 polls, anti-Aiyub movement in 1958, education movement in 1962, six-point movement in 1966, mass upsurge in 1969, elections in 1970, the great Liberation War in 1971, rehabilitation activities in post-war Bangladesh, movement for restoration of democracy after 1975 changeover, student movement in 1983 and anti-autocratic movement in 1990.
The BCL was also engaged in the movement launched by Sheikh Hasina against the ‘state terrorism’ unleashed by the then BNP-Jamaat alliance government after the 2001 polls.
The BCL also waged a strong movement after the one-eleven changeover when the army-backed government arrested Sheikh Hasina on July 16 in 2007 without any reason.
Now the BCL is working relentlessly to implement Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s programme for building a digital Bangladesh.
