Human chain for cultural centre at RU
Leaders and activists of cultural and left leaning political organisations at Rajshahi University (RU) yesterday formed a human chain demanding fresh construction of the Teachers Students Cultural Centre (TSCC) on the campus.
Sources said around 300 participants under the banner of Kendrio Sangskritik Jote formed the human chain in front of the university central library around 11:00am.
They also brought out a procession and held a rally on the campus to press home their demand. General students of the university also joined the programme.
Later, they held a cultural programme rendering folk and patriotic songs on the central library premises.
At the rally, speakers alleged that the university authorities started construction work of TSCC building in 2006 but the building collapsed before its completion due to poor management.
They also alleged that every year the authorities collect Tk 50 from each student for TSCC purpose but they do not take any step for implementation of the TSCC project.
