Resolve BUET crisis
The Teachers' Association of BUET had enforced a strike demanding resignation of the VC and Pro-VC. The prime minister had a meeting with the Teachers' Association delegate after nearly one month. She also issued directive to investigate anomalies against the administration. Since the investigation was perfunctory, the Teachers' Association decided to stick to their demands and resumed strike from 7th July. In this circumstance, the VC stealthily shut down BUET on 10th July.
Since then demonstrations have been going on demanding resignation of the VC and pro-VC. A memorandum was also submitted to the chancellor. But it seems he can not take any decision on the matter. Besides, the education minister initially gave assurances to resolve the BUET crisis. And finally, the HC issued a stay order on any agitation in BUET campus.
All these incidents prolonged the BUET crisis. And the outcome is, the students are suffering. No academic activities have been held for the last 50 days. Our term exam was scheduled to be held by mid September. Moreover, our contemporaries in other public and private universities are smoothly proceeding while we are lagging behind. In short, BUET is now entangled in a quagmire.
We fervently hope the classes will resume in the earliest possible time.
