Rajshahi University (RU) has 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,” pro-vice-chancellor of RU professor Ananda Kumar Saha told BSS on Saturday.
“We want to depict and highlight their contribution before members of the new generation,” he mentioned.
Professor Saha said design formulation work has already been completed. The work on the Tk 12.70 million mural will start very soon, he added.
Along with the mural, a Bangabandhu Squire will be set up on the campus.
He further said the RU has adopted a Tk 30 billion 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 biggest ever development programme in the university’s history after the country’s independence.
