Prof Mannan said all people irrespective of political affiliation must follow the ideals of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.  The people should also listen the speeches of Bangabandhu minutely.
"Apart from a few anti-liberation thugs, the whole nation under the leadership of Bangabandhu fought and brought independence of the country and that's why the Bangalee nation embraced him as their closest one, affectionately decorating him with the honor of Bangabandhu," he said.
The UGC Chairman urged the teachers and researchers to reach the books and periodicals written on life and works of Bangabandhu to the new generation so that they can learn about his sacrifice and contribution to the nation and its independence.
