Conspirators who plotted August 15 killings will be unmasked: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said the perpetrators behind the conspiracy to assassinate Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman would be unmasked one day.
Addressing a programme virtually from her official residence Gono Bhaban, Sheikh Hasina also renewed her vow to materialise Bangabandhu's unfinished dream of developing a hunger- and poverty-free 'Sonar Bangla' (Golden Bengal) by presenting a better and beautiful life to the countrymen.
"We've held trial of the August 15, 1975 carnage. But the perpetrators behind the plot are yet to be unmasked ... it'll definitely come to the light one day," she said while inaugurating a voluntary blood and plasma donation programme.
Bangladesh Krishak League (BKL) organised the function in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 in Dhaka this morning as part of Bangladesh Awami League and its associate bodies' month-long programme marking the 46th martyrdom anniversary of Bangabandhu and the National Mourning Day.
Recalling the August 15, 1975 carnage, Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, said, "I have lost everything -- father, mother and brothers. Now I'm working with an ideology which is my driving force."
She continued, saying, "I have to materialise the dream of my father which I heard from my childhood."
The prime minister said that she wanted to see as a victorious nation, Bangladesh moving ahead with head held high.
"We're continuing our endeavours so that the people get food, education, healthcare services as well as a place to live," she said.
Sheikh Hasina said the month of mourning began through hosting a voluntary blood and plasma donation programme by the BKL and thanked the organisation for arranging the programme in memory of the Father of the Nation to save the lives of critical patients.
The prime minister also thanked the leaders and workers of AL and its associate bodies including BKL, Chhatra League, Jubo League, Swechchhasebak League for helping farmers harvest paddy and distributing relief materials among distressed people, and for burial of those who died from Coronavirus.
AL Presidium members Begum Matia Chowdhury, and Advocate Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Joint General Secretary Krishibid AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Agriculture and Cooperatives Affairs Secretary Faridunnahar Laily and Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua also addressed the function, among others.
BKL President Krishibid Samir Chanda chaired the function and its General Secretary Advocate Umme Kulsum Smiriti also spoke.
