Left politicians at a virtual meeting to commemorate politician Abdus Salam said that the freedom fighter and politician worked for establishing a society free of oppressions and for a non-sectarian democratic Bangladesh.
Ganosamhati Andolan on Wednesday organised the meeting in commemoration of the party’s former executive coordinator Abdus Salam on his 3rd anniversary of death which fell on Tuesday.
The virtual meeting was chaired by the chief coordinator of the party, Zonayed Saki, and conducted by the party’s central leader Firoj Ahmed.
Socialist Party of Bangladesh general secretary Khalequzzaman said that Abdus Salam dreamt of a repression‑ and oppression‑free society but his dream remain unfulfilled.
He called on all the left and democratic political parties to be united to fight for a democratic Bangladesh.
Nagarik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna said that the ideals of Salam could help the politicians to be united for ending the misrule in the country.
Revolutionary Workers Party of Bangladesh general secretary Saiful Huq said that Salam could play a prominent role in saving people from ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Zonayed Saki said that Salam wanted a democratic constitution and wanted to do it dropping all the undemocratic sections of the constitution of 1972.
The leaders and activists on Tuesday placed wreaths at the portrait of Salam at the party’s central office marking the death anniversary of the leader.
