BIDA has celebrated the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s heroic Independence and the birth centennial of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman during a discussion held at its Agargaon office.
“We earned independence through great sacrifice. Today, we are far ahead of Pakistan in all aspects including education, trade, per capita income, democracy and more. This would never have been possible without independence,” said Dr. Ahmed Kaikaus, Principal Secretary to the Hon’ble Prime Minister, who graced the ceremony as chief guest.

Speaking on the occasion, BIDA Executive Chairman Md. Sirazul Islam, highlighted various aspects of the life of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“If we want to really respect Bangabandhu, then building the ‘Shonar Bangla’ he dreamed of – a land without poverty and exploitation – would be your main responsibility. We, as civil servants, must take on more responsibility, think outside the box to take our country forward," he said.
BIDA officials and staffers took part in the discussion and highlighted the sacrifices of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the freedom fighters, the 3 million martyred men and women and the 2 lakh girls and women who suffered oppression during the 1971 war. Officials from BIDA’s Divisional offices also participated using a virtual platform.
