The Ministry of Liberation War Affairs has decided to rename Cox's Bazar's Sugandha Beach to "Bangabandhu Beach" and the vacant area between Sugandha and Kolatoli Point of the sea beach will be named "Bir Muktijoddha Beach.''

The development was informed in a letter signed by the ministry's Assistant Secretary Md Shaheb Uddin on Monday. 

In the letter sent to the deputy commissioner of Cox's Bazar, the ministry has requested to take necessary steps to change the name of the two beaches. 

The decision to rename the two beaches was taken at the 13th meeting of the Standing Committee on Liberation War Affairs of the 11th Jatiya Sangsad following an application by Md Solaiman Miah, chairman of the central council of Bangladesh Muktijoddha Sontan Sangsad.
