To mark the occasion, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid tribute to the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, by placing a wreath at his portrait at the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhaka`s Dhanmondi-32 this morning. Following the tribute, she stood in solemn silence, honouring Bangabandhu`s memory.

Prime Minister Hasina, accompanied by AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader, inaugurated the day`s celebrations by hoisting the national and party flags and releasing pigeons and balloons. The Awami League had previously outlined an array of elaborate programs for the anniversary.

The day`s events began with the hoisting of national and party flags at central and regional party offices at dawn. Tributes were paid at Bangabandhu`s portrait in front of Bangabandhu Bhaban at 7 am.

A discussion is scheduled for 3 pm at Dhaka`s Suhrawardy Udyan, followed by a cultural event. Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to chair the discussion.

Additionally, cultural programs will take place at Rabindra Sarobar, and there will be a boat race and cycle rally at Hatirjheel in the afternoon.
