PM pays homage to Bangabandhu

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on the occasion of his 102nd birth anniversary and the National Children’s Day-2022

She paid the homage by placing a wreath at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at historic Dhanmondi-32 here in the morning.

After laying the wreath, Sheikh Hasina stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of the Father of the Nation, the architect of independent Bangladesh.

A smartly turned out contingent of the armed forces gave a guard of honour on the occasion.

A special munajat was offered seeking eternal peace of the departed soul of Bangabandhu and his family members.

The nation is celebrating the 103rd birthday of Bangabandhu today in a befitting manner. The day, which is a public holiday, is also being observed as the National Children’s Day.

Marking the day, the Prime Minister will also lay a wreath at the mausoleum of Bangabandhu at Tungipara in Gopalganj at 11:00am.

Hasina, also the eldest daughter of Bangabandhu, will join a programme titled ‘Tungipara: Hridoye Pitribhumi’ there at 2.30pm on the occasion of his birth anniversary and the National Children’s Day.

The PM will leave Tungipara for Dhaka by a helicopter on Thursday afternoon.
