Today is the sixth death anniversary of former president Zillur Rahman, a veteran politician and Language Movement hero, an organiser of the Liberation War, and one of the close associates of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Zillur Rahman died of old-age complications at a Singapore hospital in 2013.
He started his political career as a volunteer of Awami League and was inducted as the 19th president of the country on February 12, 2009. He discharged his responsibilities as general secretary of AL for 12 years for five different terms.
