Update : 25 Mar 2017, 10:44 PM
The ruling Awami League, which had led the Liberation War that caused Bangladesh to gain freedom from Pakistani occupancy in 1971, is all set to mark the 46th anniversary of the country's independence. With due significance and utmost tribute to the martyrs and freedom fighters, the party along with the rest of the nation will organise a number of programmes on the occasion. The party would hoist national and party flags at the residence of the architect of an independent Bangladesh, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibar Rahman, and also at its central and local offices across the country at the dawn. Floral wreaths will be placed at the National Martyrs’ Memorial in Savar at 6am on behalf of the party, as mark of respect to the war heroes and in commemoration of them, after the president and the prime minister pay their homage. An hour later, the party will pay tribute at the mural of Bangabandhu at Dhanmondi 32. A delegation comprising the party's top leaders will visit Tungipara, the birthplace of Bangabandhu where his grave is situated as well, on this occasion. At 3pm, a discussion programme will be held at the capital's Krishibid Institute with the party chief Sheikh Hasina in the chair. The central AL leaders and noted intellectuals are supposed to address the event. Meanwhile, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader in an statement urged the party leaders and activists to observe the day along with the countrymen and the party's affiliated bodies with highest enthusiasm.
