Jubo League, BCL clash over tender dropping
Two leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) were injured in a clash between activists of BCL and Jubo League over dropping of tender documents at Barisal Public Works Department (PWD) office yesterday.
The injured are Faisal bin Islam, former cultural affairs secretary of BM College unit of BCL, and Dinar, an activist of city BCL.
Jubo League activists led by Dipu, Abdullah, Rezvi and Dollar and BCL men led by Faisal and Dinar took positions at Barisal PWD office for submission of tender papers for constructing tahsil offices (land offices) in Babuganj, Banaripara, and Muladi upazilas of the district, witnesses said.
Yesterday was the closing date for submission of the Tk 60 lakh tender.
Both the groups tried to control tender submission and prevent the 'opponents' from dropping tender documents without negotiation.
As the BCL men led by Faisal tried to drop tender at about 12:30pm, the Jubo League men interfered, beat up Faisal and Dinar and made them leave PWD office premises without dropping tender, said witnesses.
