The 75th birthday of Prime Minister and Bangladesh Awami League President Sheikh Hasina will be celebrated across the country today, reports BSS.
Sheikh Hasina, the eldest of five children of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, was born at Tungipara in Gopalganj on September 28 in 1947.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now in the USA as she went there to join the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Following the footprint of Bangabandhu, she also delivered a speech in Bangla at the UNGA like the previous years.
Like the previous years, Awami League (AL) and its affiliated and like-minded bodies will celebrate the day through various programmes highlighting the life and achievements of Sheikh Hasina, who is driving the nation towards prosperity following the footstep of her father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
UNB report adds: In a record-breaking effort, the government has planned to launch another mass vaccination campaign on Tuesday aiming to inoculate 8.0 million people in one day, marking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's birthday.
