JU teachers, students protest cutting of trees on campus

UNB, Jahangirnagar University

Jahangirnagar University Student-Teacher Unity Platform organised a rally on Thursday protesting the authority's decision to cut a large number of trees in the university campus for infrastructural development. Starting from the Tarzan point of the university campus around 12pm, the procession ended with a brief rally in front of the Vice Chancellor's office.

Participants urged the authorities to ensure the protection of natural balance and to stop indiscriminate tree-cutting and erection of unplanned buildings on the campus.

Anwarullah Bhuiyan, Professor of Philosophy Department, said the university administration took initiative to erect unplanned buildings in the name of development.

Shamima Sultana, another professor, said the university will suffer a long-lasting loss if the authority's decision is implemented. Apart from this, natural beauty of the campus will be threatened here. She urged the university administration to take proper plan after receiving views from all the parties. JU Cultural alliance President Ashiqur Rahman alleged that the authority invited them to a discussion program but finalized its own decision. He described the authority's attitude as 'autocratic' and condemned it.

Participating at the rally, Jainal Abedin Shishir, Joint Convener of the Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council, urged the university authority to reconsider its plan for the sake of the students of the university.
