"Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman has always been a constant source of awakening our patriotism and consciousness," said Abdur Razzaque, a press release said here today.

Bangabandhu involved himself in politics at an early age and took a vow for the well-being of people, said Dr Razzaque, also the Awami League (AL) presidium member.

"By visiting the institutions and dormitories where Bangabandhu studied and lived during his youth, we can sharpen the spirit of our Liberation War and independence," he added.

Bangladesh Deputy High Commissioner in Kolkata Andalib Elias was present on the occasion.

The Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had got admission at Islamia College (now Maulana Azad College) in the 1940s. He was a resident student of room number 24 of Baker Hostel of the college.
