Gonojagoron Mancha-BCL Conflict

Ghatak Dalal Nirmul group seeks PM's intervention

DU Correspondent

Ekattorer Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee has sought intervention of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to resolve the ongoing conflict between Gonojagoron Mancha and Bangladesh Chhatra League, ruling Awami League affiliated student organisation.
There is no scope of any conflict and clash, as the government and the mancha activists hold the same spirit against fundamentalism, said the Nirmul Committee, a platform formed in 1992 to raise voice for the trial of war criminals, in a press statement yesterday.
Condemning police attack on mancha activists on Friday, it also urged the activists of both Gonojagorn Mancha and Muktijuddha Sangsad Santan Command, a platform of freedom fighters' children, to refrain from their confrontational stance.
If they feud themselves, the communal forces that opposed the Liberation War will thrive, the statement said.  
Instead of organising separate press conferences and criticising each other in front of the press, both the mancha and BCL should cooperate each other to eradicate fundamentalism, it added.
On Thursday night, activists of the mancha and Santan Command locked in a clash at Shahbagh intersection.
Imran H Sarker, spokesperson of the manch, then claimed that a group of people under the shelter of some BCL and Jubo League leaders carried out the attack on them.  


On Friday,  police charged truncheons on the mancha activists at Shahbagh, when the anti-war criminal campaigners gathered there to hold a rally protesting, what they claimed, attack on them by some pro-Awami League men on Thursday night.
