Auspicious Occasion for History of Bangladesh
The glorious Independence and National day is an auspicious occasion in the history of our nation. On this joyous occasion, I convey my heartfelt felicitation to all my fellow citizens and Bangladeshis living abroad.
On this great day, I pay deep respect to the martyrs of the Liberation War for their supreme sacrifices.
I solemnly remember all the national leaders, organizers, freedom fighters, people who lost their loved ones and freedom loving people of all strata for their supreme sacrifice and extraordinary contribution.
We express our gratitude to friendly countries for their support and cooperation in the war of independence.
The glorious liberation is our greatest national achievement. For this achievement to be meaningful, sustainable and effective, it is very important to bring the fruits of the independence to all citizens.
It is equally important to establish social justice and good governance and to improve the living conditions of the people. Establishing a modern, progressive and exploitation free democratic country is the demand of the day.
To achieve this, we should play due roles from our respective positions with dedication, sincerity and honesty, imbued with the spirit of liberation war and patriotism.
It is my firm conviction that the nation will succeed in reaching the goal of establishing a knowledge based and just society free from corruption, mal-governance and poverty with the combined effort and active cooperation of all people.
It is fervent expectation of the people that a benevolent government and a meaningful democratic system will be established through a free, fair, impartial and acceptable national elections.
To fulfill this aspiration, I urge upon all citizens irrespective of their affiliation to any group and opinion for united and committed efforts.
