Savar: President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday morning paid tributes to the martyrs of the War of Liberation by placing wreaths at the National Memorial here marking the 47th Victory Day.

After placing the wreaths, the premier stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memories of the martyrs of the Great War of Liberation of 1971.

A smartly turned out contingent drawn from three services presented a state salute on the occasion when bugles played the last post.

Cabinet members, PM’s advisers, parliament members, chiefs of the three services, diplomats, and high civil and military officials were present.

Flanked by senior leaders of the party, Sheikh Hasina laid another wreath at the National Memorial as the Awami League President.
