Debabrata Sarkar, the top executive of the East Bengal Club, said in his speech, "Once upon a time, two Bengalis were one and the same in the world of art, literature, sports and lifestyle. There is some distance between us due to some unknown wall. But in our heart Bangladesh is the same. Today, with the pull of that heart, the two Bengalis need to move together again. Sobhan Bhai and East Bengal Club can work together to unite the two Bengalis.
Mr. Sayem Sobhan's remarks touched the hearts of all present. He said in his speech, "I have always thought of East Bengal Club as my own club. We also want the sports-loving people and the common people of the two Bengals to come closer in the future. We will sincerely strive for this. "
