Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday greeted all freedom fighters (FFs) of the country on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Independence and the Independence and National Day.

Like in the previous years, the premier sent flowers, fruits and sweetmeats to the FFs at Martyred and War-wounded Freedom Fighters’ Rehabilitation Centre (Muktijoddha Tower-1) on Gaznavi Road in city’s Mohammadpur as a mark of her good wishes for them.

On behalf of the Prime Minister, her Assistant Private Secretary-2 Gazi Hafizur Rahman Liku and Assistant Press Secretary ABM Sarwer-E-Alom Sarker handed over these items to the FFs and their family members this morning.

The freedom fighters thanked and expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister for remembering them on every national day and festival like the Independence Day, the Victory Day, Eid and Pahela Baishakh.

They also wished Sheikh Hasina good health and long life.

The freedom fighters also extended their thanks to the Prime Minister for organizing the programmes to celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Golden Jubilee of the country’s independence.

They said the entire people of the world have not only connected with the celebration through these programmes, but also Bangladesh has attained a fresh identity to the world, marking the Golden Jubilee of Independence.

They hoped Bangladesh, under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, would stand head high as a hunger-poverty-free, developed, prosperous and self-respectful “Sonar Bangla” as dreamt by Father of the Nation.
