Ducsu talks: Highlighting safety, sexual violence to draw female voters

Today’s episode of ‘The Ducsu Election Talks 2019’ brings Tilottama Sikder, member contester from the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) panel and Umme Habiba Benojir, general secretary candidate from the Bangladesh Chhatra Federation panel in the election to the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu).

Both of them said they are giving special attention to female students who constitute about 36 percent of the total number of voters in the Ducsu polls on Monday.

Benojir said she would try to bring an end to sexual harassments, to increase facilities at the female common rooms and extend the time limit for returning to halls from 9:30pm to 11:00pm.

She, however, expressed concerns about holding a free and fair election as university administration is yet to create a level-playing field.

Claiming there is a political coexistence on the campus, BCL Contester Tilottama Sikder said her party is giving extra care to address the issues related to female students and this is why her panel has the highest number of female candidates contesting in the election. She also hoped for a free and fair election.
