President to address ‘Mujib 100-Year’ speech to nation tomorrow

DHAKA, President M Abdul Hamid is set to address

the nation tomorrow evening on the occasion of the National Children’s Day

and also ‘Mujib 100-Year’, the birth centenary of Father of the Nation

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

It is a recorded speech, which will be telecast in the radio and

television, as the ‘Mujib Barsha’ programmes were curtailed to avoid any mass

gathering, fearing the recent outbreak of the fatal disease COVID-19

(coronavirus).

On the occasion, President’s recorded speech will be telecast immediately

after opening of the fireworks at different venues across the country at 8pm,

President’s Press Secretary Joynal Abedin told BSS.

Besides, a doa mahfil and discussion will be held at Durbar Hall of the

Bangabhaban in the evening on the day.
