Today is the 70th founding anniversary of the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL). It is one of the oldest organization in the country, which is leading a strong leadership in different democratic movements and struggles.

In order to achieve the independence of Bangladesh and Bengali people, Bangladesh Chhatra League was established just a year before the birth of the main party Awami League.

On Jan 4, 1948, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman established this organization. The organization started under his leadership on Fazlul Huq Hall of Dhaka University.

Due to the motivation and patronization of the young leader Sheikh Mujib, a group of talented young people joined with him and started their journey on the day of the initiative.

In 1949, the Awami Muslim League emerged as the opposition party in Pakistan, which later is named as Awami League and took the lead in the country`s independence and independence struggle.

In this context, the establishment of Bangladesh Chhatra League is very important in the history of the Bengali nation.

Chhatra League is set to celebrate its founding anniversary through different programmes today.

Central leaders of the organization gave greetings and congratulations to all on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Bangladesh Chhatra League, the largest and old student organization of the subcontinent.

Chhatra League has taken a detailed five-day program for celebrating the 70th anniversary. National and party flag will be hoisted at all organizing offices including the central office of the organization.

They paid homage at the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban in Dhanmondi. Around 10 am, a cake cut in Curzon Hall of Dhaka University for its founding anniversary. Apart from a Joy rally held in all organizational units that located in Dhaka and throughout the country.

A BCL press release said that due to consider the suffering of the people and the Democracy Day on Jan 5, all the programs will be held on January 6 instead of January 4.
