Memorandum to RU VC
Students of Folklore Department of Rajshahi University (RU) yesterday threatened again to disrupt the admission test of the department scheduled for October 14 if the authorities fail to put the department under Social Science Faculty before the admission date. Around 200 students of the department gathered in front of the administrative building at around 12:30 pm and staged a demonstration to press their demand. They later submitted a memorandum to vice chancellor (VC) Prof Abdus Sobhan in this regard. The memorandum stated that RU VC had earlier assured the students of putting the department under Social Science Faculty before the admission test under 2009-'10 academic session. Earlier on Thursday, the students boycotted their classes and examinations and locked their classrooms and staged a sit-in in front of the arts building to press their demand. On the day, they met RU Proctor Prof Chowdhury Zakaria and threatened to disrupt the admission test if their demand was not met before October 14.
