Health Desk-23 June, 2019: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday reiterated her determination to build a hunger-and-poverty-free “Sonar Bangla” as dreamt by Bangabandhu as she opened the 70th founding anniversary programmes of Bangladesh Awami League.
“On this historic day, it’s our pledge to build a hunger-and-poverty-free developed and prosperous ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” she said after inaugurating the programmes in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban at Dhanmondi in the capital this morning.
Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, said Bangladesh is marching forward towards socioeconomic development and the Bangalee nation achieved dignity in the entire world after Awami League came to power.
“The nation lost this dignity after the assassination of Bangabandhu on August 15 in 1975,” she said.
Bangladesh Awami League was founded on this day in 1949, which was later transformed into the biggest political party of the country by leading all the democratic-political-social-cultural movements including the long arduous struggle for freedom and the War of Liberation.
