Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had dedicated his entire life for the people’s welfare, reports BSS.
“If he (Bangabandhu) survived, we could have built a prosperous ‘Sonar Bangla’ long ago,” he said while inaugurating a mural titled ‘Bangabandhu’s Struggle and Independence of Bangladesh’ at the Khadya Bhaban in the city.
The minister said Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a greatest personality.
Bangabandhu went to jail for protesting on the streets during the Language Movement of 1952. After the six-point movement of 1966, the mass uprising of 1969 and the election of 1970, Bangabandhu had made his final contribution to the War of Liberation, he added.
“Today, we are reaping the benefits of his struggle as an independent nation,” said the minister.
Sadhan said, at present, his worthy daughter Sheikh Hasina has taken various initiatives to revive the country’s economy even in the midst of this global epidemic.
He urged the countrymen to forget all discriminations and be inspired by patriotism to build a prosperous ‘Sonar Bangla’ under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.
Among others, Secretary of the Food Ministry Dr. Mst. Nazmanara Khanum and other senior officials were present.
