MNA Education Desk: Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Begum Rokeya University Rangpur, (BRUR) Professor Dr AKM Nurun Nabi here today said the anti-liberation forces must be resisted to save national independence.
“The spirit of the War of Liberation should be properly nurtured in every sphere of the society to thwart the anti-liberation forces for safeguarding independence of the country,” he said.
