Nation observes Historic 7th March

The nation is all set to observe the Historic 7th March, a memorable day in the history of Bangalees’ long arduous freedom struggle, on Tuesday with due respect, reports UNB.
On this day in 1971, Bangalees’ undisputed leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman delivered his epoch-making speech of independence before a mammoth rally at the historic Race Course Maidan, now Suhrawardy Udyan, in the city.

In his 19-minute extempore speech before a million freedom-loving people, Bangabandhu had made a clarion call for a non-cooperation movement asking the nation to prepare for the war of independence to liberate the country from the exploitative Pakistan regime.

The ruling Awami League and different socio-political and cultural organisations have chalked out elaborate programmes to observe the day in a befitting manner.

AL’s programmes include hoisting the national and party flags at Bangabandhu Bhaban and at the party’s central office at 6:30am and placing wreaths by party leaders at the portrait of Bangabandhu at the Bangabandhu Bhaban, Dhanmondi at 7am.

The party’s all unit committees, including wards, unions, municipalities, thanas, upazilas and districts ones, will hold discussions, rallies in observance of the day.

On the occasion, President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages recalling with gratitude courageous and farsighted leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in materialising the nation’s journey to freedom through his March 7 speech.

Bangladesh Betar and Bangladesh Television as well as private television channels and radio stations will air special programmes while national dailies will publish special supplements marking the day.
