The Rajshahi University authorities have adopted an initiative of installing murals of four national leaders — Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmed, AHM Kamaruzzaman and Captain Monsur Ali- on the campus as soon as possible.
‘We have taken the initiative as recognition of their laudable and heroic contribution to the nation and its independence,’ RU pro-vice-chancellor Professor Ananda Kumar Saha told the news agency on Saturday.
‘We want to depict and highlight their contribution before members of the new generation,’ he mentioned.
Professor Saha says design formulation work has already been completed.
The work would start very soon, he added.
Along with the mural, a Bangabandhu Squire will be set up on the campus.
Professor Ananda Saha also said that the university authorities had adopted a Tk 3,000-crore mega plan for making its teaching, learning and research activities more effective through substantial and sustainable infrastructural development.
The 50-year plan has been adopted for overall development of education and infrastructures. This is the ever biggest development programme in the university’s history after the country’s independence.
