The party has decided not to organize any programmes this year due to Coronavirus pandemic
Tomorrow is May 7, a red letter day in the history of the nation, as Awami League President and present Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned home on this day in 2007 defying a ban on her return home during the state of emergency.
On her return home following her treatment in the United States, Sheikh Hasina was accorded a rousing reception by hundreds of people from all walks of life, particularly leaders and workers of her party and its associate bodies.
Earlier, the then caretaker government imposed a ban on Sheikh Hasina's return home but her firm determination and mass support for her return to the
country compelled the then caretaker administration to withdraw the ban.
Later, the AL-led grand alliance formed a government with a landslide victory after the ninth general election held on December 29, 2008.
Marking the day, the AL and its associate bodies observed different programmes every year. But the party has decided not to organize any programmes this year due to Coronavirus pandemic.
The AL leaders urged the countrymen to pray for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina staying at home for her long life and good health.
