PM pays homage to Bangabandhu

Prime Minister and reelected Awami League President Sheikh Hasina today paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Sheikh Hasina along with other newly-elected office-bearers of the party including General Secretary Obaidul Quader paid homage to Bangabandhu by placing a wreath at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi here this afternoon.

After placing the wreath, the prime minister and other AL leaders stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of the great leader.

Later, Sheikh Hasina went to Bangabandhu Bhaban and placed another wreath at the portrait in front of the historic house.

The AL president offered fateha and munajat sitting on the stairs where Bangabandhu was assassinated on the fateful night of August 15 in 1975.

Sheikh Hasina was unanimously reelected as the president of Awami League, while Obaidul Quader elected as the new general secretary in the party's two-day 20th National Council on Oct 22-23.

This is for the eighth time that Sheikh Hasina, the elder daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has been elected as the head of Awami League, one of the oldest political parties in the subcontinent.
