Hi Swapan,

You can have a look at the QGIS source code on github [1]
It is hard to tell, if it suits your needs. For rendering, creating and 
editing shape files you would not need to adjust the software at all 
and could just use it as is, without messing with the source code at 
There would also highly customize it to your needs by using the 
customization menu. [2] Or you could even build an own application 
using these libraries if you see a reason for doing so. [3]

FYI: It is not using OpenGL at all (apart from the globe plugin)
