BCL demands Ducsu polls
Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) yesterday staged demonstration on Dhaka University (DU) campus demanding Ducsu election and resolving accommodation crisis.
In support of their demand, around 1000 BCL leaders and activists brought out a procession and held a rally at noon.
Addressing the rally, the BCL leaders also urged the government to allocate more funds for DU to resolve its transport problems and ensure quality food in canteens of the dormitories.
"We demand that the university authorities take steps to hold Ducsu election soon and the government allocates more funds to resolve our accommodation and transportation problems," said BCL DU unit General Secretary Sajjad Saqib Badsha while talking to The Daily Star.
BCL DU unit President Sohel Rana Tipu urged the university administration to take steps to recover occupied university lands and build more halls to resolve the accommodation crisis.
He also demanded access to Internet for all DU students and modernisation of DU Central Library.
The leaders said general people blamed the BCL men for seat politics at halls.
But the real scenario is that the hall authorities are unable to allot seats for the huge number of students, they said urging the student leaders to manage seats for general students.
Expressing solidarity with the demands, BCL central unit President Mahmud Hasan Ripon and General Secretary Mahfujul Haider Chowdhury Ratan also spoke at the rally.
