CHATTOGRAM, Dec 10, 2019 (BSS) – A month-long 31st traditional victory

igniting the victory flame in presence of hundreds of freedom fighters and
people from all walks of life.

Barrister Nowfel in his speech said the traditional victory fair has
been playing a very important role in informing the youth folks of the
glorious War of Liberation.

“The new generation could not be able to know about the fact if such
victory fair was not arranged”, he said.

He said there is no other country in the world that had to shed such
blood to achieve the independence.

soil for Independent Bangladesh, highlighting true history, culture and
