Protesting Dhaka University students ended their “hunger strike until death” last night after the authorities assured them of listening to their complaints and making the Ducsu electoral process more transparent.
The agitating students demanding a fresh Ducsu election yesterday issued a three-day ultimatum to the Dhaka University authorities to announce a repolling or face a tougher movement from Sunday.
Terming yesterday’s Ducsu election as nontransparent, four candidates of the opposition panel begin a fast unto death demanding fresh election to the Dhaka University students’ union.
It seemed some puzzles from the 11th parliamentary polls resurfaced yesterday to haunt Dhaka University students, who turned up in huge numbers to vote in the Ducsu polls.
The sack of ballots allegedly found in Bangladesh-Kuwait Maitree Hall were all marked in favour of Bangladesh Chhatra League panel.
Protests erupted in Dhaka University yesterday immediately after most of the prominent panels boycotted the Ducsu election citing mass irregularities.
Chief Returning Officer of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) SM Mahfuzur Rahman expressed regret over any untoward incidents during yesterday's election.
