DHAKA, March 11, 2017 (BSS) - A group of prominent citizens at a discussion here today echoed each other saying Bangabandhu had made his best efforts to rebuild the war-ravaged Bangladesh and put it on the right path of development in the quickest possible time.
With the passage of time, they said, the people would realize the sincere and pragmatic steps of the Father of the Nation he had taken soon after the independence in 1971.
The observations were made at the discussion held at the Jatiya Press Club, organized to mark the 97th birth anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
President of Bangabandhu Parishad Dr SA Malek chaired the function, which was also addressed, among others, by vice chancellor of Rajshahi University Dalem Chandra Barman, pro-vice chancellor of Dhaka University Professor Dr Akhteruzzaman, president of the National Press Club Mohammad Shafiqur Rahman and former chairman of Agrani Bank Board Professor Dr Khandaker Bazlur Rahman.
The eminent citizens said Bangabandhu was no more but his ideals, courage, political wisdom, patriotism and love for general masses would inspire generations after generations to be patriotic and hard-working.
The key to respect Bangabandhu, they said, would be to keep full confidence in the spirit of the war of independence and the 'Bangalee' nationalism.
