President M Abdul Hamid today called upon all irrespective of party affiliations to contribute from their respective positions in implementing the ‘Vision-2021’ and ‘Vision-2041’ undertaken by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to make Bangladesh a prosperous country.
“I urge all to continue their efforts to materialize dreams of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to turn Bangladesh into a ‘Sonar Bangla’,” the President said in a message on the eve of the historic March 7.
Noting that Bangabandhu’s lifetime dream was to turn the independent-sovereign Bangladesh into a prosperous ‘Golden Bangla’, he added: “We must continue our efforts to fulfill that dream of our great leader.”
On the occasion of Bangabandhu’s birth centenary and the golden jubilee of independence, President Hamid said Bangabandhu’s March 7 speech was one of the most celebrated speeches in the world, which was a great efficacious message to the freedom-seeking people to make them jump into battle breaking the chains of subjugation.
“How an address can awaken the whole nation, inspire them to leap into the War of Liberation for Independence, Bangabandhu’s ‘historic 7 March Speech’ is a unique example,” the head of the state observed.
Realizing the significance of the speech, the UNESCO, included it in Memory of the World Register on October 30 in 2017, by giving the honor of World’s Documentary Heritage, he added.
The historic address of Bangabandhu March 7 will be an eternal source of inspiration not only for us but also for freedom-loving people around the world, President Hamid mentioned.
