DHAKA: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina asked leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) to work for welfare of the people being imbued with the ideology of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“If you want to build yourselves as soldier of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, you would have to work for the welfare of the people of the country by keeping away from all the personal gains following the ideology of Bangabandhu,” she told the BCL leaders and activists.
The premier, as the chief guest, was addressing a discussion marking the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Mourning Day, organized by BCL at her official residence Ganabhaban Saturday (August 31).
“Bangabandhu scarified his life for the betterment of the people. You would have to work for the people for whom Bangabandhu dedicated his entire life,” she said to the BCL workers.
A minute’s silence was observed at the function as a mark of respect to the memory of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other martyrs of the August 15, 1975 carnage.
A three-minute video documentary on the activities and its role in building the nation and a promo of mobile game on the Liberation War made by Chhatra League leaders, were also screened on the occasion.
Sheikh Hasina also unveiled the cover of BCL's regular publication “Matribhumi” and its monthly mouthpiece “Joy Bangla”, which is going to be published regularly from this August.
BCL's Dhaka South City unit President Mehedi Hasan and General Secretary Md Zobair Hossain, Dhaka North City President Ibrahim Hossain and General Secretary Saidur Rahman Hridoy, Dhaka University (DU) President Sanjib Chandra Das and General Secretary Saddam Hossain, among others, spoke on the occasion.
