President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have paid rich tribute to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on the occasion of his 99th birth anniversary.

The president and the prime minister paid their homage by placing wreaths at the mazar (mausoleum) of Bangabandhu in Tungipara upazila of Gopalganj on Sunday.

President Abdul Hamid first laid a wreath at the mazar of Bangabandhu followed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

After placing the wreaths, they stood in solemn silence for some time as a mark of respect to the memory of the Father of the Nation, as the bugle played the last post.

A smartly turned out contingent drawn from the Bangladesh Army, Navy and Air Force gave a guard of honour on the occasion.

Abdul Hamid and Sheikh Hasina offered fateha and joined a munajat seeking eternal peace of the departed soul of Bangabandhu, as well as other martyrs of the carnage on August 15, 1975.

Later, the president signed the visitor's book kept at the mazar premises.

Earlier, upon his arrival at the mazar premises, President Abdul Hamid was received by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, her younger sister Sheikh Rehana, AL Presidium Member Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, MP Abul Hasnat Abdullah and  MP Sheikh Helaluddin.

Flanked by senior leaders of the party, Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, placed another wreath at the mazar of Bangabandhu on behalf of the party.

The prime minister flew to Tungipara after placing wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Road 32, Dhanmondi, in the capital.

The birthday of Bangabandhu is being observed across the country as National Children's Day.

The day is a public holiday.
