MEHERPUR, April 15, 2018 (BSS) - Meherpur district Awami League (AL) today organised an extended meeting to observe the historic Mujibnagar Day in a befitting manner.
AL Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif was present as chief guest at the meeting at Poura Community Center with district AL president and member of the Parliament Forhad Hossain in the chair.
"Denying Mujibnagar tantamount to denying the country. Because the first independent government of the country took oath on that day," Hanif said.
He said the BNP-led government gave Jamat-e-Islami the opportunity to do politics but the AL-led government brought back the ideals of the Liberation War, he added.
He urged all AL leaders to work for making the Day a success.
District AL general secretary M A Khalek, Mokbul Hossain, MP, district AL former President and former MP Joynal Abedin, Zila Parishad Chairman and Sadar upazila AL president Golam Rasul were present, among others.
