The Postal Department on Friday issued a commemorative stamp and opened an envelope marking the historic Six-Point Demand Announcing Day.

Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar unveiled the commemorative stamp worth Tk10, an opening envelope worth Tk10, and a data card worth Tk5 from his official residence, said a press release.

On February 5 in 1966, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman launched his historic six-point political and economic programme in Lahore.

Bangabandhu made the six-point demands aiming at attaining greater autonomy for the then East Pakistan in the backdrop of exploitation and discrimination by the then Pakistani rulers.

Commemorative stamps, opening envelopes and data cards can be collected from the Philatelic Bureau of Dhaka GPO now and later from other GPOs and major post offices across the country.
