Jatiya Sangsad Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Choudhury on Sunday said the government has been working to build a prosperous golden Bangla upholding the spirit of language movement and independence. 

"Bengali nation sacrificed blood for their language and independence which is rare in the world. The blood stained Bangladesh constitution is a unique endowment of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman," said Dr Shirin Sharmin Choudhury while speaking at a programme at Jatiya Press Club (JPC) in the city. 

JPC organised the programme titled "Bangabandhu, Liberation War and Bangladesh" marking the Mujib Barsho and Golden Jubilee of Independence.

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque and Chief Coordinator of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Birth Centenary Celebration National Implementation Committee Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury attended it as special guests. 

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Choudhury said Bangladesh is on the path of development under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
