BNP deplores ‘BCL attack’ on quota protesters

UNB

BNP yesterday strongly condemned Saturday's "barbaric" attack on the leaders of anti-quota movement by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Dhaka University campus, reports UNB. "Chhatra League is a dangerous anti-democratic force in educational institutions. They launched a heinous attack on Saturday on the students involved in the anti-quota movement," said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.

Speaking at a press briefing at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he alleged that the BCL men equipped with sharp weapons attacked on selected leaders of the movement, leaving them seriously injured.

"BNP strongly protest and condemn the barbaric attack on the anti-quota demonstrators," Rizvi added.

He said the Prime Minister's announcement of accepting the demand for reform in the quota system was mockery. "The entire nation is now observing the mockery. In fact, the Prime Minister deceived the demonstrators on that day."

Though BCL is a traditional organisation, the BNP leader said it has now turned into "young trooper of a fascist force". "They don't obey the law; they insult students and swoop on them if they raise voice against them."

Earlier on Saturday, some members of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, the platform of students that led the quota reform movement, were injured in an attack allegedly by some BCL activists on the Dhaka University campus.

In April, students of public and private universities across the country waged a strong movement demanding reforms in the quota system.
