City Desk :
Chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh Professor Abdul Mannan on Thursday said that the future of the country lies in the hands of present generation.
"Three million people sacrificed their lives during our liberation war in 1971 for the better life of the present generation," Prof Mannan said this on Thursday while speaking at a programme at University of Chittagong.
He was present as the chief guest at the fresher's reception programme of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the university, said a UGC press release.
Professor Mannan said that universities are places for practicing knowledge.
"Universities are not places for creating unrest or disrupting the academic atmosphere of the university. Students should not forget that public universities are run using public money and no one has the right to misuse the money," he added.
