Celebrating golden jubilee of independence thru 21 grand rallies begins Friday

   DHAKA, Nov 24, 2021 (BSS) - The government has decided to celebrate the 
Golden Jubilee of the country's Independence holding 21 grand rallies with 
the title 'Victory on Streets" across the country from November 26. 

  "Of the total grand rallies seven will be held at regional level and 14 
will be held at sub-religion level in the areas which were freed from 
Pakistani occupation forces before December 16, 1971," said a press release 
quoted Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque as he told a press 
briefing at the ministry's conference room in the Secretariat here today.
  The celebration through the grand rallies will begin on Friday (November 
26) by holding the first sub-regional level grand rally in Dinajpur, he said. 

  Mozammel, also chairman of the cabinet committee constituted to celebrate 
the Golden Jubilee of Independence, said, "The cabinet committee has 
finalized 50 programmes at national level to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of 
the country's Independence in a befitting manner. The grand rallies with the 
title 'Victory on Streets (Pathe Pathe Bijoy)" is one of them". 

  Noting that though Bangladesh had achieved final victory on December 16, 
1971, many regions of the country were freed from Pakistani enemies before 
the date, he said, "By celebrating these victories, we are trying to uphold 
the significance of the enemy-free areas (before December 16) to the 
country's people".

  The rallies will be held at the center points of cities where people of all 
walk of life, including Liberation War veteran freedom fighters, public
