Earlier, the procession ended at the same place after parading different important city streets.

Taking part in the discussion, the other speakers put utmost emphasis on disseminating true national history of the Liberation War among the members of the new generations for building Sonar Bangla as dreamt by the Father of the Nation.
The building of Bangabandhu's Sonar Bangla is yet to be finished even after 46 years of Independence and the unfinished task must be completed through united efforts of all people including the young generation, they said.

Pakistani occupation forces arrested the architect of the country's Independence on March 25, 1971 from his Dhanmondi residence during late night crackdown on the people of Bangladesh (the then East Pakistan) and sent him to the then West Pakistan.
On this day (January 10) in 1972, Bangabandhu returned to an Independent country after nine and a half months of captivity in the Pakistani jail which later appeared to be crucial in the subsequent political history of Bangladesh and re-established the spirit and norms of the Liberation War in the country.
