Demanding Ducsu election, Dhaka University student Walid Ashraf continued hunger strike for the third consecutive day yesterday although he is falling ill.
A master's student of social welfare and research, Ashraf began the strike on Saturday on the Eternal Memory premises.
He again said he would continue the strike till death unless the authorities meet his demand.
“The authorities have taken necessary steps to hold registrar graduate election as per the direction of the High Court but did not take any step to hold Ducsu polls,” he told The Daily Star.
Meanwhile on the third day, some university students joined him to express solidarity with his demand.
No DU official came to visit him.
No election to the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu), which had played a pivotal role in many democratic movements, has been held since 1990.
