Dhaka, June 7 (UNB) – Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday questioned whether those deny the historic Six-Point Day believe in the spirit of the country’s independence.
“Question arises whether those deny this day (Six-Point Day), the important milestone in the struggle for liberation, believe in the value of the Liberation War and the spirit of independence,” he said.
Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, made the remarks after paying tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing a wreath at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban at Dhanmondi on the occasion of the Six-Point Day.
Terming the six-point demand the charter of freedom of Bangalees, he said June 7 is an unforgettable and significant day in Bangladesh’s history.
The ruling party leader said the historic movement for six-point demand, declared by greatest Bangalee of all times Bangabandhu, took an important turn on June 7, 1966.
He said Bangladesh achieved the independence under the dynamic leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. “And now the country is moving forward under the visionary leadership of Bangabandhu’s worthy daughter Sheikh Hasina.”
“Today, we’ll have to take a vow to build exploitation- and poverty-free, and non-communal Bangladesh to make the freedom struggle a success in independent Bangladesh,” Quader said.
