Dr Kamal Hossain, the President of Gono Forum in his address during the National Conference of the party on Friday , urged people to forge a greater unity once again like 1971 to resist the anti-people evil forces. He requested the audience to go door to door to make people understand the need of the time and participate in the united movement. Blasting the government for distorting the history of the War of Independence in the school textbooks, the framer of the constitution stressed the need for creating consciousness among the youths. He said though the country got rid of autocracy in 1990, democracy is yet to be achieved. The conference was held at the Institution of Engineers, Dhaka. Mainstream opposition leaders and civil society representatives renewed their call for greater unity of the pro-liberation, patriotic and democratic forces to save the country from what they said was 'misrule' of the alliance government. They envisioned a prosperous Bangladesh in lieu of the current poverty-stricken, violence-ridden, fundamentalist-infested and politically divided motherland. They also hoped that the country would surely have a pro-people government in future. Top ranking leaders from all major opposition parties were on the dais.
