The 'Mujib Borsho' is scheduled to be celebrated from March 17, 2020 to March 26, 2021

Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would attend the “Mujib Borsho” program as a representative of India for its great contribution in the Liberation War.

Quader, also the general secretary of the ruling Awami League, made the statement on Wednesday referring to BNP’s objection over Modi’s scheduled visit for the inaugural ceremony of “Mujib Borsho,” the birth centenary celebration of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

He was handing over the party’s membership forms and copies of the party constitution to the Awami League leaders of Kurigram and Comilla districts at the Awami League chief’s political office in Dhanmondi, reports UNB.

“India must participate in the ‘Mujib Borsho’ program because of its great contribution in the Liberation War,” he said, adding: “Narendra Modi will attend the function as a representative of India.”

In 1971, millions of Bangladeshis fled to India. The Indira Gandhi-led government provided shelter to the people and supported Bangalis’ struggle for freedom.

The “Mujib Borsho” is scheduled to be celebrated from March 17, 2020 to March 26, 2021.

Meanwhile, BNP questioned Modi’s visit against the backdrop of the recent riots in New Delhi over the country’s disputed new citizenship law that had claimed dozens of lives.

The new citizenship law fast-tracked naturalization for non-Muslim migrants from neighbouring Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who are living in the country illegally, reports AP.
