Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said the historic March 7 speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is still an inspiration to take the country forward.

The prime minister was addressing a ceremony as the chief guest marking the historic March 7 speech of Bangabandhu, joining virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence in the capital.

She also expressed her optimism that none can confuse the new generations about the true history of the Liberation War as the world is now open to them for technological advancement.

She added: "The world is open now before today's generation. So, they cannot be confused anymore what was made for 21 years. I firmly believe that it won't be possible to push them to darkness at the age of technology."

Mentioning that Bangladesh is advancing ahead and will forward further, the prime minister said the March 7 speech of the Father of the Nation will encourage all to achieve the goals.
