People pay tribute to General Aung San’s statue marking 75th anniversary of Martyrs’ Day

People and social organizations paid tribute to the statue of National Leader General Aung San to mark the 75th Martyrs’ Day in Bogyoke Park, Natmauk road of Bahan township yesterday.
“When I was 14 years, Bogyoke was assassinated. So, I joined the army. I came here every Martyrs’ Day to pay tribute to the fallen leaders. I have faith in General Aung San, the father of the army, and General Ne Win is the mother,” said U Soe Nyunt, who is 89 years old and retired.
People and vehicles on the roads stopped and honked their horns with the Flag of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar being at half-mast to pay tribute to fallen leaders at 10:37 am. People went to visit the house of General Aung San and the Bogyoke Park on Natmauk Road yesterday.
General Aung San, a leading luminary of the country, was born on the 1st Waxing of Taboung 1276 ME and died on the 2nd Waxing of Wakhaung 1309 ME. It was engraved under the statue in Bogyoke Park. The opening ceremony of the statue was held on 13 February 1955, Bogyoke’s 40th birthday. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/GNLM
