Dr. Md. Sabur Khan said that our school going students are making many innovative projects with their own costs even by saving their Tiffin money while studying at school level. But, these students loss their innovative energy while studying at university or higher education level due to our education system which is unfortunate. We have to reform our education system, he added.

While addressing at the inaugural ceremony Dr. Muhammed Zafar Iqbal said to the students, don’t stay drowned into the textbooks. You have to read all kinds of books. If you are a student of science, you have to study general science beside physics, chemistry and biology. You should also read the novel, poem and story books. Otherwise your thought world would not expand. And your thought will be in single track.
Single track thought is very dangerous said Muhammaed Zafar Iqbal. He said, most of our ‘jongi’ are the student of engineering. Because, they didn’t read any other book without engineering books. They don’t think alternative way. To change this mentality we all have to come forward.
