Dhaka, Nov 16 (UNB) – Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Saturday urged the freedom fighters (FFs) to come forward to build a new Bangladesh free from poverty, inequality and social injustice.
“We got the independence under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, but our struggle for emancipation from poverty, economic discrimination, social injustice and discrimination among people is not over yet,” he said.
Quader further said, “The freedom fighters who were ready to sacrifice their lives for the country have to play a responsible role in the struggle for establishing the justified rights of people. Freedom fighters must come forward to build a new Bangladesh under the leadership of Jatiya Party.”
He came up with the remarks while speaking at a programme of Jatiya Muktijoddha Party at Jatiya Party chairman’s Banani office.
Quader said their party’s late founder HM Ershad honoured the freedom fighters in various ways as he considered them as the best sons of the soil.
He said Ershad initiated allowances for the freedom fighters and set up offices for them. “The current Prime Minister further enhanced the trend of respecting the freedom fighters.”
Jatiya Party secretary general Moshiur Rahman Ranga said people will ever remember with gratitude the sacrifices of the freedom fighters for the country and their contributions to it.
“Many people will be able to MPs and ministers, but those who did not fight for their country will never become freedom fighters. That’s why HM Ershad called the freedom fighters the best sons of the nation,” he said.
