Carmichael College Alumni Association president and additional secretary Jahangir Alam presided over the discussion as part of celebration of the anniversary programme.

Supreme Court justice M Enayetur Rahim, chief whip of the Opposition in parliament Mashiur Rahman Ranga MP, Rangpur mayor Mostafizur Rahman Mostafa and Carmichael College principal professor Md Amjad Hossain reminisce about their campus memories.

Cheerfulness of former and incumbent students and teachers of the college knew no bounds while celebrating its 105th founding anniversary with the theme ‘Come back again and again to the pull of the heart’.

Addressing the discussion, the social welfare minister said the killers of the country’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and evil forces are still trying to thwart the development of Bangladesh.

“Bangladesh is known as a role model in the global arena under the dynamic leadership of prime minister Sheikh Hasina,” he said.

He called upon the former students of Carmichael College to play a vital role in inspiring the next generation to build a developed Bangladesh following the ideals of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Later, the minister handed over the prizes to the winners of the debate contest organised by the Carmichael College Alumni Association and inaugurated an ambulance provided to the college by an organisation.

Artists of various cultural organisations rendered songs and performed dances enthralling thousands of former and incumbent students and teachers of the institution.
