Rajshahi edn institutions to reopen in a week
Top officials of all closed higher educational institutions in Rajshahi last night at a meeting decided to reopen almost all their institutions within a week enforcing a three-month ban on student politics.
The institutions were closed sine die following the March-13 violence on Rajshahi University (RU) campus.

Rajshahi Divisional Commissioner M Hafijur Rahman Bhuiyan chaired the meeting where top brasses of all the educational institution attended.
The reopening of RU and Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology will be discussed in another meeting.
According to their decision, Rajshahi Medical College, Rajshahi College, New Degree College, City College, Polytechnic Institute and Health Technology Institute will resume academic activities in seven days.
"The students bodies cannot bring out any procession or hold meetings on campus for three months," Shefaul Karim, deputy commissioner of Rajshahi, told reporters after the meeting.
