Chhatra League ‘at the ready’ in DU
Hundreds of activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the ruling Awami League’s student front, are gathering at Dhaka University in the middle of the ongoing quota agitation at campus.
Rallying from various wards of the city, the AL activists marched into the campus and took position in front of Modhur Canteen, our staff correspondent reports from the spot.
Some of them came by trucks loaded with the leading party activists. They got down of the trucks in front of the Public Library at Shahbagh and marched into the campus in groups.
Last reported, they were standing still outside and inside Modhur Canteen.
Yesterday, Dhaka University turned to a battlefield during clashes between quota protesters and law enforcers that went on for most of the overnight.
Today too, the protesters are gearing up for a second day’s round of tougher agitation, to press for demands of reducing the 56 per cent quota reservation to around 10 per cent.
