Provisional Government of Bangladesh


 During the War of Liberation, the Provisional Government was formed on 10 April 1971 with Chuadanga District as the capital of Bangladesh . On 17 April 1971, the members of the cabinet of this government were sworn in at Vaidyanath Tala (now Mujibnagar). March 6, 1971, the declaration of independence and against the Pakistani occupation forces started pratirodh yuddha country's liberation war of Bangladesh to conduct Liberation Organization and coordination, earning the support of the international community and the support of the state of war in IndiaThe role of this government in maintaining organizational relations with the government and the army was immense. With the formation of this government, the resistance war against the Pakistani aggressors turned into a fierce battle and the victory of Bangladesh as an independent and sovereign state was accelerated.


On the night of March 5, 1971, Operation Searchlight took place at the time when the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Pakistani army before his arrest in the early hours of March 6, the night of March 5, Bangabandhu EPR 's a small transmitter in the country declared independence. Then on 26 March Major Ziaur Rahman officially declared the independence of Bangladesh on behalf of Bangabandhu from the Kalurghat radio station in Chittagong .From that day onwards, Bangladesh became known to the outside world as an independent sovereign state.

Meanwhile , Tajuddin Ahmed , one of the main leaders of the Awami League , fled his residence during the horrific massacre on March 25 . It was at this time that he began planning to form the government of Bangladesh. He continued to think of forming a government to carry out this policy in an organizational way, first in self-defense, then in preparation and finally in counter-attack. Meanwhile, on the evening of March 30, he reached the West Bengal border on the Faridpur - Kushtia route . Barrister Amir-ul Islam crossed the Meherpur border on 31 March and entered India . Meherpur about crossing the borderThe then sub-divisional administrator Tawfiq-i-Elahi Chowdhury gave them all the help. After crossing the border, Golak Majumder Tajuddin Ahmed, the then Inspector General of the Indian Border Security Force , and Amir-ul-Islam, the barrister, were accorded due protection. After receiving the news from Golak Majumdar, KF Rustamji, Director General of the Indian Border Security Force, spoke to them at their shelter and with Tajuddin Ahmed, and was fully aware of the overall situation in East Bengal and the indomitable desire of the Bengalis for independence. Arriving at the border, Tajuddin saw that the Indian army and the border guards had nothing to do until they received instructions from the Indian government to support the rebel forces of the Bengal Regiment. Tajuddin Ahmed BSF on the formation of the Liberation ArmyAsked for help, the then BSF chief told him that training and providing arms to the freedom fighters was a time-consuming task. He added that he would not be able to provide training and weapons to the Mukti Bahini as there was no instruction from the Indian government on training till then. When KF Rustamji contacted the senior officials of Delhi, he was informed to take Tajuddin Ahmed and Barrister Amir-ul Islam to Delhi . Purpose The meeting between Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Tajuddin Ahmed. Upon his arrival in Delhi, the Indian government confirmed from various sources that Tajuddin Ahmed was a close associate of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Before meeting with Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Tajuddin Ahmed had several meetings with senior Indian government officials and he explained the help and cooperation needed to conduct the liberation struggle of the Bengalis . At this time he realized that if he met as a leader of the Awami League, nothing could be expected without a little sympathy and sympathy. No country in the world would extend a helping hand to Bangladesh without the strong support of that government for the formation of the government and for the war of liberation. On the eve of the meeting with the Indian Prime Minister, a senior official asked Tajuddin if a government had been formed in favor of an independent Bangladesh. He then decided that he would present himself as a representative of the Bangladesh government at the meeting. Because of the 'resolution passed in the Indian Parliament on 31 March to help the struggle of the people of East Bengal' Tajuddin thinks that it can be effective. At the beginning of his meeting with Indira Gandhi, Tajuddin said that the government was formed by declaring Bangladesh independent on March 26 as soon as the Pakistani invasion began. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib is the president of that independent Bangladesh government and all the senior colleagues who attended the Mujib- Yahya meeting are members of the cabinet. Apart from the arrest of Sheikh Mujib, the news of other senior leaders and activists of the party remained unknown till then.At that meeting, Tajuddin Ahmed requested Indira Gandhi to recognize independent Bangladesh. Indira Gandhi assured him that formal recognition would be given in due course. Thus began the idea of ​​a temporary Bangladesh government.
