Accompanied by Sheikh Rehana, the younger daughter of Bangabandhu, the Prime Minister then offered munajat at the mazar seeking eternal peace of the departed souls of the Father of the Nation, Bangamata Begum Fazilatunnesa Mujib and other martyrs of August 15, 1975 massacre.
Prayers were also offered seeking continued peace, progress and prosperity of the nation.
The Prime Minister along with cabinet members, party leaders and workers joined a milad and doa mahfil on the mazar premises marking the National Mourning Day, organized by the cabinet division and Gopalganj district administration.
