He said that the postal department released the stamps marking the two historic events.
At the programme, the minister highlighted the need for the establishment of the East Pakistan Awami League Muslim League in the Rose Garden on 23 June 1949 and its historical background.
He also said that one does not know one's identity without knowing the history of the nation and its struggle.
The history of Awami League is the history of protest against exploitation and discrimination, the history of struggle for establishment of equality society, said the minister.
Bangladesh Awami League (AL), country’s one of the oldest political parties, on Tuesday celebrated its 71st founding anniversary on a limited scale with different programmes particularly on virtual media in the wake of coronavirus outbreak.
