The Policy Times Dhaka Bureau :
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (23 June) paid glowing tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman marking the 72nd founding anniversary of the ruling Bangladesh Awami League.
To mark the founding anniversary, she placed a wreath at the portrait of the Father of the Nation at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 here this morning.
After laying the wreath, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also President of the Awami League, stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of Bangabandhu.
Bangladesh Awami League was formed on this day in 1949, which later transformed into the biggest political party of the country to lead struggles of freedom, the War of Liberation and all democratic movements.
