President Md Abdul Hamid paid rich tributes to the martyrs of the Liberation War of Bangladesh by placing wreaths at the National Mausoleum in Savar on Wednesday.

Md Abdul Hamid placed wreaths at the monument at around 3:00 pm and stood there in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memories of the martyrs of the 1971 Liberation War.

A smartly turned out contingent drawn from Bangladesh Army, Bangladesh Navy and Bangladesh Air Force presented a gun salute.

Paying respects to all martyrs, the President in the visitors’ book wrote that the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working relentlessly to realise the dream of Bangabandhu, who dreamt of a Sonar Bangla.

He called on all to play the role from their respective position in building the nation.

Earlier, President Guard Regiment gave President Hamid a guard of honour at the Bangabhaban.

President Hamid made a unique record in the history of Bangladesh by swearing in as the head of the state for the second consecutive term on Tuesday. He is the first politician in Bangladesh to get re-elected as president after completion of the first term. 

He then paid respect to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing wreaths at around 4:00 pm on the portrait of Bangabandhu at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhanmondi.

He will travel to Gopalganj’s Tuingipara on Thursday to pay respect to Bangabandhu at his grave. On Friday, he will visit his own Upazila Mithamoin in Kishoreganj.
