People’s Theatre Association (PTA) in cooperation with Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) held a cleanliness campaign on the Central Shaheed Minar premises on Monday.
Liaquat Ali Lucky, founder of PTA and Director General of BSA, inaugurated the ‘Shaheed Minar Cleanliness Campaign’ where over 500 children from different schools and cultural organisations took part.
The campaign began with the observance of a one-minute silence as a mark of respects to the martyrs of the 1952 Language Movement and the singing of the national anthem.
Later, PTA and BSA members staged a cultural programme where they performed songs, including ‘Amar Bhaiyer Rokte Rangano’ and two group songs written and composed by Lucky.
Along with acrobatic performances, the cultural session also featured group dance performances with three songs, including ‘Dhannya Mujib Dhannya’.
After the cultural performances, all the participants, led by Ali Lucky and other officials of PTA and BSA, swept the Shaheed Minar premises and surrounding areas.
The event concluded with an oath to keep the Shaheed Minar neat and clean.
