Our independence was completed with the return of Bangabandhu to his homeland. The historic speech delivered by Bangabandhu on his return to the independent country was a complete guideline for the nation building. He gave a far-reaching outline on how to move a country with a fragile economy and create a science-based education system.
The dream of Bangabandhu is being implemented by his worthy successor Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”
He said, “There is no alternative to research for a country's sustainable development. We have to play a role in building Bangabandhu's golden Bangla at the university level.”
