Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on Monday urged the countrymen to keep vigilant until the fundamentalist force is uprooted from the soil of Bengal.  

The mayor made the remark after placing a wreath at Martyred Intellectual Graveyard in the capital’s Mirpur, marking Martyred Intellectual Day.

Urging the countrymen to be vigilant, Taposh said, “Fundamentalist, reactionary and communal force is still prevailing across the country. Whenever they get chance, they bite like a snake and try to destroy the ideology of our independence.”

“Until the fundamentalist force is uprooted from Bangaldesh, we have to keep vigilant,” he also said.

Taposh, also the member secretary of Bangabandhu Awami Ainjibi Parishad, said, “We have achieved independence by sacrificing three million lives, including the intellectuals.  Bangladesh has gain ground across the globe under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”

He also mentioned that the construction of Padma Bridge with self-finance is a big achievement of independent Bangladesh.

“We lost our greatest sons on this day of 1971. I pay a great tribute to the memory of the heroes,” he also added.
