AL founding anniversary: PM pays homage to Bangabandhu
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, marking the 72nd founding anniversary of Awami League.
On the occasion, she placed wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhaka's Dhanmondi-32 in the morning.
After laying the wreath, Sheikh Hasina, also President of Awami League, stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of the Father of the Nation.
Awami League was founded on this day in 1949, which later transformed into the largest political party of the country to lead the struggles for freedom, the War of Liberation and other democratic movements.
