DHAKA, Aug 25, 2019 (BSS) – Finance Minister A H M Mustafa Kamal today urged the public servants to work with sincerity and honesty for country’s development and economic emancipation to build a ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“Bangabandhu fought two wars – one for country’s independence and another for country’s economic freedom but the second war he could not finished . . . so, we have to take part in this war actively,” he added.
The finance minister was addressing a discussion organized to mark the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Mourning Day by National Board of Revenue (NBR) in city’s Institute of Diploma Engineers’ Auditorium.
Mentioning that Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is not only a name, it is a name of belief, a flag and a country, he said: “We have to repay debt to Bangabandhu by ensuring country’s economic freedom and establishing Bangladesh before the world as s prosperous country.”
Former Dhaka University Vice Chancellor Professor Dr A A M S Arefin Siddique, NBR Members Kalipad Halder and Sultan Md Iqbal, National Savings Department Director General Shamsunnahar Begum and Internal Resources Division Additional Secretary Bishwajit Banik also spoke at the discussion with NBR Chairman Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan in the chair.
Arefin Siddique urged the government to form a separate commission to identify the people responsible directly and indirectly for the assassination of Bangabandhu and bring them to justice.
The conspiracy behind the killing of Bangabandhu is still going on and the grenade attack on his daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in 2004 was a part of it, he added.
