Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday paid tribute to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman marking the 75th founding anniversary of the ruling Awami League.

She paid homage to Bangabandhu by placing a wreath at his portrait at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 in Dhaka this morning.

After laying the wreath, the prime minister stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect for the memory of Bangabandhu.

Later, flanked by senior party leaders, Sheikh Hasina, also president of the Awami League, paid tribute to Bangabandhu by placing another wreath at his portrait on behalf of her party.

Sheikh Hasina along with Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader inaugurated the day's programme by hoisting the national and party flags and releasing pigeons and balloons.

The Bangladesh Awami League was formed on this day in 1949, and later transformed into the biggest political party in the country to lead movements for freedom, the War of Liberation, and all democratic movements.
