July 16, 2020 00:00:00

The imprisonment day of Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will be observed today in a befitting manner, reports BSS.

The Awami League chief was arrested from her Sudha Sadan residence at Dhanmondi in the city on July 16, 2007 during the military-backed caretaker government, which assumed power in the political changeover of 1/11 in 2007.

Awami League (AL) and its associate bodies observe the day as the 'Imprisonment Day of Sheikh Hasina' while Krishak League observes it as 'Democracy Confining Day'.

To mark the day, AL and its associate bodies have taken various programmes, including discussions and doa mahfils, maintaining social distancing.
