BNP pays homage to Monno

BNP paid on Thursday last respects to industrialist and party chairperson's advisory council member Haruner Rashid Khan Monno by placing wreaths on his coffin, reports UNB.

The coffin of Monno, also a former minister without portfolio, was taken to BNP's Nayapaltan central office around 10:00 am and kept on a temporary stage in front of it, enabling party leaders and activists to have a last glimpse of their late leader.

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir along with party senior leaders, including Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Nazrul Islam Khan, placed wreaths on his coffin and draped it with a party flag as a mark of respect to Monno.

In a brief address prior to a janaza there, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said Monno was one of the country's pioneering industrialists.

"He also established many organisations in his home district Manikganj, to provide people with social and healthcare services."

Recalling the late BNP leader's contributions to the country and society, he said Monno worked for the welfare of common people throughout his life. "We're deeply shocked as he has left us forever. We know the void created through his demise won't be easily filled."

Later, his first namaz-e-janaza was held there. Several hundred party leaders and activists joined the janaza. A munajat was offered seeking the eternal peace of the departed soul.

From Nayapaltan, Monno's body was brought to South Plaza of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban where his second janaza was held.
