Commerce minister pays tributes to Bangabandhu

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at his shrine at Tungipara yesterday on the occasion of taking new charge as a member of the newly formed cabinet.

He placed a wreath at the shrine and stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of Bangabandhu, the architect of independence. The new commerce minister offered fateha seeking peace and progress of the nation. He also joined a special munajat seeking eternal peace of Bangabandhu and other martyrs of the August 15 carnage.

On January 9 last, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina accompanied by her cabinet colleagues and senior Awami League leaders, placed wreaths at Bangabandhu's shrine. But, the commerce minister could not accompany the prime minister as he had to attend the inaugural ceremony of 24th Dhaka International Trade Fair which was inaugurated by President Md Abdul Hamid on that day.
