PM pays tributes to NAP President
Live Correspondent: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today paid rich tributes to one of the political luminaries of the country and Bangladesh National Awami Party-NAP (Muzaffar) President Professor Muzaffar Ahmed.
The prime minister paid the homage by placing a wreath on his coffin draped with the red-green national flag at the South Plaza of Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban here this morning. After laying the wreath, the premier stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memory of Prof Muzaffar, also a member of the advisory council of the Mujibnagar government that led Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971.
Earlier, the first namaz-e-janaza of the NAP president was held at South Plaza of Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban at 11 am. Prof Muzaffar, who was the NAP president for over five decades, breathed his last around 8 pm on Friday in the city’s Apollo Hospitals.
