The AL-led 14-party alliance has completed four years of their tenure. Anyone who has a little sense will agree that the rowdy elements of the AL's student wing, BCL, have created troubles for the party. But it is a matter of great regret that the AL high-ups including its party chief Sheikh Hasina do not seem to be bothered at all by the BCL's terrorism. To our surprise, we have also witnessed how the home minister has encouraged BCL's unruly activities. As a result, we had Bishwajit Das and many others killed and our educational institutions almost ruined. To our horror, we have seen how our respectable teachers are beaten and insulted. What is more, the BCL cadres can easily get away with their most horrible crimes. The law enforcers don't nab the culprits who are seen moving with arms in front of them. Needless to say, this creates the culture of impunity. We are shocked by the activities of both the administration and the party in power. Awami League should not forget that the public who voted them to power will not take much time to throw them out of power in the 2014 national election. So, stop BCL.

Bangladesh Chhatra League has become a Frankenstein in the eyes of the common people. The BCL cadres are involved in violence and turf war among them. They are doing this to establish their supremacy in every educational institution of the country. A few days ago, a 10-year-old boy was killed in a gunfight between BCL's two factions at Bangladesh Agricultural University. During the blockade of BNP-led 18 party alliances, BCL cadres mercilessly murdered a 24-year-old tailor, Bishwajit Das. The murder of Bishwajit by the BCL cadres shocked every conscious citizen. They even threw acid at teachers at Begum Rokeya University. The heinous acts of BCL are going to ruin the academic life of general students. Who will stop them?
