Universities should hold central student union polls
The speakers at a discussion yesterday said the vice-chancellors of public universities should take necessary steps to hold elections to central students’ unions that have been halted for over two decades.
The speakers came up with the remarks while addressing the discussion titled, "Why we need Rucsu", organised by Bangladesh Chhatra Federation of RU unit at Rajshahi University Deans' Complex.
The elections to the central students’ unions of universities in the country depend on the sincerity of vice-chancellors and pro-vice chancellors. If they want, they can hold the election anytime, the speakers said.
Ganosanghati Andolan Rajshahi unit convener Murad Morshed alleged that the university authorities are not allowing the polls fearing it may restrict their continuous malpractices in different sectors.
Speakers also urged the concerned authorities to take effective steps to create a positive environment for holding the student union elections.
Rucsu former social welfare affairs secretary Mustafizur Rahman also spoke at the discussion with Chhatra Federation president Kingshuk Kinjal in the chair.
