AL takes elaborate programme marking 75th founding anniversary

The 75th founding anniversary of ruling Awami League (AL), which led achieving country's independence through the 1971 Great Liberation War, will be celebrated across the country Monday (June 23).

The AL has taken elaborate programmes, marking its founding anniversary.

The programmes include hoisting of national and party flags at central and countrywide party offices at the dawn, paying tributes at Bangabandhu's portrait in front of the Bangabandhu Bhaban at 7am.

On the day, a discussion will be held at Suhrawardy Udyan at 3 pm followed by a cultural event.

Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will preside over the discussion.

Besides, a cultural programme will be held at Rabindra Sarobar and boat race and cycle rally will be arranged at Hatirjheel in the capital.

On the same day, a delegation of Awami League (AL) Central Working Committee will pay rich tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing a wreath at his mausoleum at Tungipara in Gopalganj.

The party was established on June 23, 1949 as Awami Muslim League at Rose Garden in the capital's old part. But, later it appeared as Bangladesh Awami League (AL) to have a secular look.
 
The Awami League is one of the oldest, non-communal, largest and leading political parties in the country. And the work of building a non-communal Bangladesh was first initiated by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
 
At the time of its establishment, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was in jail and he was made joint general secretary of the party then.
