Faction of teachers, staff call indefinite strike at BRUR
A faction of teachers, students and staff of Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur (BRUR) yesterday called an indefinite strike demanding that the postponed admission test of the university be held immediately.
They also sought removal of the vice chancellor as, what they claimed, he is not taking proper steps to hold the test.
They were addressing a human chain formed on the campus.
Dr RM Hafizur Rahman, convener of Samannita Odhikar Bastobayan Parishad and president of BRUR Teachers' Association, said they were demonstrating to avoid session jam.
The admission test for the first year honours programmes under 2014-15 academic session, which was scheduled for December 4, 5 and 6, has been postponed after the administrative officials resigned from their respective posts in November last year.
Contacted, VC AKM Nurun Nabi told The Daily Star that the test could not be held immediately following the resignation of the officials.
Tuhin Wadud, president of another faction of the association Neel Dal, said they were in favour of holding the admission test immediately but against the strike and removal of the VC.
