Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said Bangabandhu’s January 10, 1972 speech has all guidelines required to run an independent state.
“The January 10, 1972 speech of Bangabandhu at the Racecourse Maidan on his return to the country from Pakistani captivity has all the required guidelines to run an independent state. There was no written speech in his (Bangabandu’s) hand. Whatever he said he uttered from his heart,” she said.
She said this while presiding over a discussion meeting virtually from Ganabhaban on Sunday marking the historic Homecoming Day of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The AL organized the meeting from the party’s central office at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital.
On this day (January 10) in 1972, Bangabandhu, the undisputed leader of the nation and supreme commander of the country’s Liberation War, returned to the sacred soil of independent Bangladesh from London en via New Delhi after 290 days of captivity in Pakistan jail.
The Prime Minister called upon all her party leaders and activists, particularly the new generation, to rehear the speech of January 10 alongside the Historic March 7, 1971 address of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
In this connection, she said, “You will get everything by rehearing the speeches such as getting inspiration in doing politics.” The Prime Minister simultaneously urged all the people to follow the health guidelines, including wearing masks and sanitizing hands, to protect themselves and thus others from the coronavirus.
