Awami League presidium member Dr Nuh-ul-Alam Lenin said here today that the country’s first site museum would be set up at the newly excavated thousand year’s old Buddhist Monastery at Raghurampur in Bikrampur.
“There will be display of articles and relics of old civilization including the country’s oldest boat excavated here. The planned site museum to be set up at the birthplace of sage Atish Dipankar would be of immense importance for many reasons. It would be a place of attraction also for other countries,” he said.
The central leader of the ruling Awami League said that the land for setting up of the museum has already been purchased besides the newly excavated archaeological site and work on the museum project would likely be started in January.
Lenin said this while speaking as the chief guest at the inauguration of Agrasar (Advanced) Bikrampur Bhaban at Malopara in Munshiganj district headquarters.
Gnanpeeth Swadesh Kendra executive president Principal Sukhen Chandra Banerjee chaired the function, also addressed, among others, by Prof Dr Md Anwar Hossain, a teacher of Microbiology Department of Dhaka University, Prof Probir Kumar Ganguly, educationist Md Shahjahan Miah, Principal Jahangir Hasan and president of Munshiganj Press Club Meer Nasiruddin Ujjal.
Lenin, also president of Agrasar Bikrampur, hoped that the newly inaugurated building would be the best utilised for research works in the region of Bikrampur.
