On the occasion of the Golden Jubilee and National Day of the Great Independence, the Awami League (AL) has paid homage by laying wreaths at the National Memorial and the portrait of Bangabandhu at Dhanmondi No. 32.
The tribute was paid on Friday by the party’s General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader.
Bangladesh Awami League presidium members Matia Chowdhury, Abdur Rahman, Office Secretary Barrister Biplob Barua and Deputy Office Secretary Sayem Khan and among others were present on the occasion.
After paying homage at the National Memorial, Obaidul Quader told reporters, “Today is the great Independence Day and National Day and we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of Independence. Under the leadership of Bangabandhu, Bangladesh gained its independence after a nine-month war in exchange for the sacrifices of the martyrs. If Bangabandhu was not born, Bangladesh would not be born either.”
Today’s oath is to defeat the enemies of freedom, communal evil forces and caste-ridden freedom fighters, he further said. “Let communal free Bangladesh be on the Golden Jubilee of Independence. Therefore, the communal power of Bangladesh must be eradicated.”
After paying homage to the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the greatest father of the Bengali nation of all time, at No. 32, historic Dhanmondi, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said, “Bangabandhu had gained legitimacy as the leader of the majority party elected by public vote. So there may be many readers of the Declaration of Independence but only one announcer and he is Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.”
