Bangladesh's Victory Day being celebrated at Agartala
The 46th anniversary of Bangladesh’s victory is being observed by the country’s Assistant High Commission at Agartala, the capital northeastern Indian state of Tripura. Bangladesh Health Minister Mohammed Nasim attended the programme as the chief guest. The celebrations started on Saturday morning with the minister hoisting the national flag of Bangladesh. He also placed a floral wreath at the portrait Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as a mark of tribute to the architect of an independent Bangladesh. Afterwards, he narrated the significance of the day to the reporters present at the event saying: “This is the day (Victory Day) when we were freed from the clutches of the Pakistani oppressors. We pride ourselves on this occasion.” “Tripura has an equal share in this feeling as its people had accompanied us in the 1971 struggle for independence.” He recalled that Tripura had provided refuge to a number of people from Bangladesh during the Liberation War. Finally, the welcome notes from Bangladeshi president, prime minister, foreign minister and his deputy were read out to at the programme. Around the same time, Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy paid homage to the martyrs of 1971 at the Post Office Chowmuhani of Agartala.
