Kalerkantho Editor Imdadul Haq Milon, Bangladesh Pratidin Editor Naem Nizam, Kalerkantho Executive Editor Mostofa Kamal and Daily Sun Editor (acting) Enamul Hoque Chowdhury, were present, among others, in the cake-cutting ceremony.
With other scheduled programmes on the day, some Kalerkantho journalists will be honoured for their outstanding performance over the years around 3pm while on behalf of the organization, 15 freedom fighters will also be given reception at 4pm.
On January 10, 2010, with a slogan of “Angshik Noy Puro Sotto” (Full truth, not partial), Kalerkantho has started its journey.
The national daily, however, has earned a huge popularity among the readers from home and abroad with its objective and investigative journalism.
