President Md. Abdul Hamid on Thursday (Nov 21) paid rich tributes to the martyred members of the Armed Forces on the occasion of the Armed Forces Day 2019.
The head of the state placed wreaths at the altar of Shikha Anirban (eternal flame) in Dhaka Cantonment in the morning.
After placing the wreaths, Hamid stood there in solemn silence for some time as mark of profound respect to the martyrs, who made supreme sacrifices during the 1971 Liberation War.
A smartly-turned out contingent drawn from Army, Navy and Air Force presented a guard of honour at that time while bugle played ‘The Last Post’.
President Hamid signed the visitors’ book kept on the premises of Shikha Anirban.
Earlier, upon their arrival at Shikha Anirban, the President received by the chiefs of the three services and the Principal Staff Officer (PSO) of the Armed Forces Division, local media reported.
