Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said from the historic 6-point demand the urge for independence among the people had gained momentum.
She made the statement while participating in an unscheduled discussion in Parliament on the 6-Point Day.
The Prime Minister said that the blood of the martyrs did not go in vain.
“We have attained our Independence,” she said.
Hasina said that it was very much regretful that after the Independence when Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was building the war-ravaged country he was assassinated.
“After his killing the country failed to advance further,” she added.
The Leader of the House mentioned that when Awami League returned to power again, it followed the footsteps of the Father of the Nation.
“And the government has been able to advance the country to a developing one,” she said.
She mentioned that in the historic speech of March 7 Bangabandhu had mentioned that no one will be able to suppress the people.
“That is the reality, no one will be able to suppress Bangladesh anymore, because the people of Bangladesh know it very well that Bangalees are independent and victorious.”
Hasina said that the people of the country will roam around the world keeping their heads high.
“We will build a developed and prosperous Golden Bangla and will build Bangladesh as a smart one by 2041.”
She mentioned that Bangladesh has attained its independence in lieu of supreme sacrifice of millions of martyrs.
“We must not allow that independence to fail and we will not allow that. Our forward march will continue,” she said.
Deputy Leader of the House Matia Chowdhury, Awami League MPs Amir Hossain Amu, Tofail Ahmed, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Abul Kalam Azad and Jatiya Party MP Kazi Firoz Rashid also spoke.
