BCL lift expulsion order against two RU leaders

RU Correspondent

The Bangladesh Chhatra League central committee has recently withdrawn the expulsion orders issued against two of its Rajshahi University unit leaders, who had been expelled for beating up a journalist on the campus.  The BCL central committee revoked the expulsion order of legal affairs secretary Saiful Islam Bijoy on Sunday night, while that of Md Mahmudur Rahman Kanon, information and research affairs secretary, had been done earlier, on November 16.

Both press releases announcing the revocation and signed by BCL central committee president Saifur Rahman Sohag and general secretary SM Jakir Hossain, said that the expulsion order of two leaders had been withdrawn following the recommendation of the RU unit president and general secretary.

 Chhatra League central office secretary Delwar Hossain Shahzada said the revocation followed assurances by the two that they would not violate the organization’s rules again.

Earlier, the BCL central committee had expelled the two leaders amid protests by journalists against the assault of a colleague on the campus while he was taking photos of BCL vandalizing a bus in front of the main gate of the university, leaving him seriously injured.

 Meanwhile, journalists working on the campus expressed grave concern over the BCL decision.

 Protesting against the revocations, RU Reporters’ Unity president Shihabul Islam said they were deeply

worried. “Through the withdrawal of the expulsion orders of the two fellow leaders, the BCL again proved that they are providing legitimacy to criminal activities,” he added.
