JCD adamant on demands centring DUCSU polls

Progressive Students’ Alliance besieges VC office
Correspondent, DU

The Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has demanded a modern, up-to-date, standard digital library capable of meeting the needs of 43,000 students of Dhaka University. Activists of the student organisation took part in a human chain in front of the university's central library yesterday noon. BCL central president Rezaunul Haque Chowdhury Shovon, general secretary Golam Rabbani, DU wing's president Sanjit Chandra Das and general secretary Saddam Hussein were present at that time. Rezaunul Haque Chowdhury Shovon said: “Dhaka University is known as the Oxford of the East. But the library here suffers from a serious lack of facilities. So, we're urging the administration to increase facilities and promote infrastructural development for the library.  We want an increasing number of seats in the reading room."  

JCD sticks to its demands centring DUCSC polls The BNP-backed student wing, Jatiatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), says their demands for participating in the DUCSU polls would be the same.

“If needed, we'll hold a procession for this. However, we'll also collect nomination forms tomorrow (today),” said one of their leaders.

JCD central general secretary Akramul Hasan confirmed the matter while taking to reporters yesterday. From the very beginning, the JCD has been pressing for ensuring a congenial atmosphere and setting up polling booths outside the halls. It has also sought a rethinking regarding the candidates’ age limit being fixed at 30 years.

Around 40 activists of JCD, led by JCD general secretary Akramul Hasan, came to Madhur Canteen around 1:30pm yesterday. After half an hour, JCD DU unit president Al-Mehedi Talukder and general secretary Abul Bashar Siddiqui joined them. Hasan said they would be active in field till the end. “We're positive about the DUCSU polls and will remain active till the end,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Progressive Students' Alliance, a platform of left-leaning student organisations, and the Anti-Imperialism Students' Alliance besieged the vice- chancellor's office yesterday to press their six-point charter of demands. The demands include ensuring the rights of freedom of speech and expression on the campus, freeing the halls of terrorism and illegal occupation, setting DUCSU polling stations outside halls and others.
