MNA Education Desk (JnU Correspondent): University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman Prof Abdul Mannan has said that since the students are the future of tomorrow, they can play a vital role to build up a rich, bright and peaceful country through taking part in the anti-militant and anti-drug activities.

He came up with this comment while addressing a discussion as Chief Guest held at the central auditorium of Jagannath University (JnU) on Monday at 12:00pm, marking the 47th Independence and National Day.

He also said “…. We gained the independence through much sacrifice and struggle for a long time. The opponents of the liberation are always trying to distort the history of liberation war in 1971. But their evil attempts to hide the true history regarding our independence will never be succeeded.”

JnU Teachers’ Association organised the discussion with its President Prof Dr Priyabrata Pal in the chair.

JnU Vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Mijanur Rahman attended as Chief Speaker while JnU Treasurer Prof Md Salim Bhuiyan, Political Science Department Chairperson Prof Dr Arun Kumar Goshwami and Bangla Department Prof Dr Hosne Ara Joli were, among others, present at the discussion.
