Jatiya Oikya Front convener Kamal Hossain on Thursday urged all to launch a united and positive movement to materialise the dreams of martyrs who laid down their lives for establishing democracy, the rule of law and make people the country's owners, reports UNB.

"Our country was liberated at the cost of blood of lakhs of people. The martyrs sacrificed their lives with the dreams of making people owners of the country, establishing the rule of law and democracy. The dreams of the martyrs are written in our constitution," he said.

Speaking at a discussion, Kamal further said, "We established an independent sovereign Bangladesh through an outstanding unity in 1971...we must do some more things to make the independence meaningful. Before the completion of 50 years of the independence, let's get organised to gain power through a movement. Our movement will be a positive one with an objective to materialise the dreams of martyrs."

Once people had waged a united movement, he said no one can stop it and foil it applying any force. "From my experience, I can say if we get united, we'll be able to make our independence meaningful by resorting people's ownership of the country. So, let's spread to every locality and villages to organise people, and then we'll be able reach our desired goal.”

Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rob) arranged the programme at the Supreme Court Bar auditorium, marking its 47th founding anniversary.
