PM pays homage to Bangabandhu in Tungipara

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing a wreath at his mausoleum in Tungipara of Gopalganj on his 47th martyrdom anniversary and the National Mourning Day.

After laying the wreath at 11:50 am on Monday (August 15), the prime minister stood in solemn silence for some times as a mark of profound respect to Bangabandhu, the architect of independent Bangladesh, who was brutally killed by some disgruntled army men on the dreadful night of August 15, 1975 along with most of his family members.

A smartly turned out contingent drawn from the armed forces gave a state salute on the occasion, while the bugle played the last post.

Later, the prime minister offered Fateha and munajat at the grave seeking eternal peace of departed souls of the Father of the Nation, Bangamata Begum Fazilatun Nesa Mujib and other martyrs of August 15, 1975 massacre.

Flanked by senior Awami League (AL) leaders, Sheikh Hasina, also AL President, later placed a wreath at the grave of Bangabandhu on behalf of the party.

Leaders of different associate bodies of AL also placed wreaths at the grave.

Earlier, Sheikh Hasina arrived in Tungipara, the ancestral home of Bangabandhu, by an Air Force helicopter after placing wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation at Dhanmondi 32 in Dhaka as part of the national programme on the day.
