A seminar on youth’s role on ensuring quality education was held at Rajshahi University (RU) on Saturday.
World Linkup, a volunteer organisation of the university working to achieve the United Nations-determined 17 sustainable development goals, has arranged the seminar at the university Shaheed Minar Muktamanchaw at 5:00pm.
Bangladesh Bank former governor Atiur Rahman addressed the seminar as discussant with World Linkup president Shahaduzzaman Shishir in the chair.
Addressing the programme Atiur Rahman said, the youth are inextricably involved with the country’s history and tradition. ‘The role of the youth in the 1969’s Mass uprising, in the 1971’s Liberation War, in the 1990’s anti-autocratic movement is unparalleled. Father Nation’s Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman could establish a direct communication between the youth and the society. And that is why the youth participated in the liberation war were the most in number. After the country’s independence Bangabandhu declared on march 26 in 1971 that he was working for future generation. But we are unfortunate that we have lost such a person like him.
Atiur Rahman said, the life force in the youth are inexhaustible. Youth should have to try to establish with their own endeavors. They must have the desire to succeed. Only then will the success come.
Among others, RU pro vice chancellor Professor Ananda Kuamr Saha and student adviser Professor Laila Arjuman Banu spoke at the programme.
