Dhaka, July 5: President Md. Shahabuddin said, the regiment has been recognized as a disciplined, complete and independent organization due to the increase in the scope of responsibility, changes in the organizational structure and the tireless efforts of the members of the Presidential Guard.

He said, "As the head of state of the country, the president has a close relationship with this traditional regiment. Please accept my warm regards and congratulations. My sincere congratulations and gratitude to those whose tireless efforts and sacrifices have brought the Presidential Guard Regiment to the present stage since its inception."
The President said, "The father of the nation took plans for the development of all sectors of the war-torn country, played an important role and attached importance to social development.
