B'desh Prez hails Hasina’s role in public welfare

B'desh Prez hails Hasina’s role in public welfare

Dhaka, May 16 ( UNI) Bangladesh President M Abdul Hamid on Wednesday felicitated Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina on her 38th "Homecoming Day" and praised her contribution to country's democracy, development and public welfare through epoch-making programmes.

"Country is moving towards tremendous development due to pro-people welfare activities and the far-sighted leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina," the President told in a message on the eve of the day, when she (Hasina) returned to her motherland Bangladesh 37 years ago, on May 17, 1981, after six years in exile.

Mr Hamid said it was a milestone to resume the journey of democracy in Bangladesh which smoothed the path to establish spirit of Liberation War, values of Independence and democracy.

The President said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members were assassinated by anti liberation forces on the fateful night of August 15, 1975.

During that period, Bangabandhu's two daughters Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana who were visiting West Germany, escaped but could not return to the country.

The President said Ms Hasina was elected president of Bangladesh Awami League unanimously in her absence at the national council of the party on February 14-16 in 1981.

The President wished her and her family members long life, prosperity and continuous success of her government.
