People from all walks of life streamed onto Dhanmondi Road-32 yesterday to pay tribute to the Father of the Nation, as speeches of Bangabandhu and patriotic songs reverberated through the city.
It was not dawn yet. A false dawn spread its pale light across the sky. At House 677 of Road 32 in Dhanmondi, it was time to change guards while everybody was still in deep sleep: President Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, his wife Begum Mujib, sons Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Jamal and Sheikh Russell, daughters-in-law, and brother Sheikh Naser.
Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said it is not easy for the present government to bring back the convicted fugitive killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to the country.
