PM greets FFs with gifts on Pahela Baishakh


 DHAKA, April 14, 2018 (BSS) – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today greeted all Freedom Fighters (FFs) of the country on the occasion of ‘Pahela Baishakh’, the first day of Bengali New Year-1425.

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

PM’s Assistant Private Secretary (APS) Saifuzzaman Shikhar, Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokan and Assistant Press Secretary Emrul Kayas handed over these items to them this morning.

The war-wounded FFs and members of the martyred families 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 expressed gratitude to the Premier for undertaking massive steps for their rehabilitation including construction of Mutijoddha Tower-1, a 13- storey residential-cum-commercial building, at Mohammadpur.

The war-wounded FFs and members of the martyred families said that they get due honour only when the Awami League and Sheikh Hasina remain in state power.

They wished the Prime Minister good health and a long life.
