Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said, “Anti-liberation forces are still boasting in Bangabandhu’s Bangladesh. These evil forces need to be eradicated.”
The minister made the remarks after laying a wreath at the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban in city’s Dhanmondi on Monday morning on the occasion of Bangabandhu's Homecoming Day.
Dr Hasan Mahmud said, “Today is the 50th anniversary of the homecoming of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Although we achieved independence on December 16, 1971, our independence was fulfilled on January 10, 1972, when Bangabandhu, the Father of the Nation, the architect of independence, who revived the sleeping Bengalis with the spirit of independence, came back to the country.”
He further said that on the 50th anniversary of Bangabandhu's Homecoming Day, the holy spirit of Bangabandhu is surely finding peace as Bangladesh is moving forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“Bangladesh is now a middle income country. The country has food surplus. Bangladesh has been established as a dignified state in front of the world under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, daughter of Bangabandhu,” he added.
Mentioning that the anti-liberation forces are still boasting in Bangabandhu’s Bangladesh, the minister said, “BNP and their collaborators Jamaat who were against the independence are plotting against the sovereignty, development and progress of the country. These evil forces need to be eradicated to move the country forward.”
