Awami League on Tuesday paid tributes of national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam marking his 43rd death anniversary.
The party's General Secretary Obaidul Quader placed a wreath at the poet’s grave by the Dhaka University Central Mosque at around 8:30am.
AL Joint General Secretary Abdur Rahman, Organising Secretary Enamul Haque Shamim, Science and Technology Affairs Secretary Engineer Abdus Sabur, and Deputy Office Secretary Biplab Barua were present, reports UNB.
After paying the homage, Quader said, “We lost three greatest Banglaees – Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Bard of Bengal Rabindranath Tagore and national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam in August.”
He called for building a non-communal Bangladesh upholding the spirit of Nazrul.
