DHAKA, Jan 16, 2019 (BSS) – Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) today staged a rally demanding immediate holding of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) polls and ensuring students’ rights and other facilities for them.
The pro-Awami League student body brought out a procession from the university’s Madhur Canteen, marched throughout the campus and held a rally at Aparajeyo Bangla.
In the rally, BCL leaders pressed demands which included– holding of DUCSU polls immediately, giving framework to turn DU as a full-fledged residential university, controlling plying of public transports through DU campus, forming education commission to evaluate evening programmes, maximum allocation for research activities, ensuring proper food facilities for students and atomization of all academic-administrative tasks to reduce student’s sufferings.
While addressing the programme, BCL central president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon said, “We want DUCSU polls by March this year to groom future leaders who will lead the country. DU students are facing two problems immensely– accommodation crisis and food crisis. At least these two problems can be solved by holding DUCSU polls”.
Demanding immediate holding of DUCSU polls, BCL General Secretary Golam Rabbani said, “Students face numerous problems and seek for a platform to press home their demands but we failed to get this for 28 years”.
BCL DU unit general secretary Saddam Hossain urged the university authority to automize all the academic and administrative tasks to reduce the immense sufferings of the students.
Saddam urged the authority to take new decision regarding evening programs on the campus. “This university is not a business hub to earn money. It is not a training center for offering and conducting evening programmes”.
BCL DU unit president Sanjit Chandra Das said, “We obviously want DUCSU election and that should be for ensuring the rights of students”.
