Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday (November 24) placed a proposal in the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) to hold a special discussion on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of the country’s independence, pledging to take Bangladesh to a dignified position by building it as a developed and prosperous country.
“In this historic moment of observing the golden jubilee of the country’s independence, our commitment will be to take Bangladesh to a dignified position on the world stage by transforming it into a “Sonar Bangla” free from poverty and hunger, repression and discrimination, and a developed and prosperous country, overcoming all the challenges, as envisioned by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” she said.
The Leader of the House moved the proposal under Section 147 of the Rules of Procedures in the 15th session of the 11th parliament.
At the beginning of the day’s sitting, President Abdul Hamid gave a commemorative speech marking the golden jubilee of the country’s independence.
