Sheikh Hasina’s homecoming day today

MNA Feature Desk: The 37th homecoming day of Awami League President and now Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is being observed today.

On May 17 in 1981, she returned after a long exile.

President Abdul Hamid in a message on the occasion said she has immense contribution to the development, progress and flourishing of democracy in Bangladesh.

President Abdul Hamid wished her and her family members long life, prosperity and continuous success of her government.

After a long hovering over the airport, an aircraft of Indian Airline carrying Sheikh Hasina from New Delhi via Kolkata, touched the runway at 4:30 pm.

Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with his family members was brutally killed on August 15, 1975. Luckily his daughters, Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana, were in Germany then, and thus became the survivors.

Awami League, Awami Juba League, Chhatra League and other associate bodies of AL have chalked out elaborate programme marking the day.
