AL takes elaborate programme marking 73rd founding anniversary 

 
DHAKA, June 22, 2022 (BSS) - Bangladesh Awami League (AL), one of the 
country's oldest political parties, has drawn up an elaborate programme to 
celebrate its 73rd founding anniversary tomorrow. 
 
The anniversary programme will begin with hoisting the national and party 
flags atop all party offices, including the central office, with the sunrises 
tomorrow. 
 
Later, glowing tributes will be paid to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu 
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on a small scale by placing wreaths at his portrait on 
the premises of Bangabandhu Bhaban in Dhanmondi at 8 am.
 
Besides, a delegation of Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) led 
by Presidium member Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Faruq Khan will place wreaths at 
the mausoleum of Bangabandhu at Tungipara in Gopalganj at 10:30 am, 
maintaining the health protocols. 
 
The delegation will include ALCWC members Iqbal Hossain Apu, MP, and Syed 
Abdul Awal Shamim. 
 
A discussion will be held at the party's central office in the city's 
Bangabandhu Avenue at 10.30 am on the day. Awami League President and Prime 
Minister Sheikh Hasina will virtually chair the discussion through 
videoconferencing from her official Ganabhaban residence.
 
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister 
Obaidul Quader today called upon the party units at different tiers across 
the country and its associate and like-minded bodies to celebrate the party's 
founding anniversary through different programmes keeping similarity with the 
central programmes.
 
He also urged to maintain the health guidelines during the celebration.  
 
Founded on June 23 in 1949, Awami League has been transformed into an 
organisation of the masses by leading all the democratic-political-social-
cultural movements, including the long arduous struggle for freedom and the 
War of Liberation.
  
Though the country's biggest political party was floated as Awami Muslim 
League at the historical Rose Garden at KM Das Lane in Dhaka, the word 
'Muslim' was dropped at its third council in 1955.
