No initiative has taken yet to mediate the ongoing crisis of Jahangirnagar University (JU) here though already two days of the ultimatum by the demonstrating teachers and students have already elapsed. They issued a 7-day ultimatum on November 13 demanding reopening dormitories and resuming the academic activities of the university.

Talking to the JU Proctor ASM Feroz-Ul-Hasan said, “Its’ not possible to resolve the ongoing crisis of the university by issuing any ultimatum. Discussion is the only way to resolve this crisis”.

Meanwhile, the protesters said that they will go for the tougher movement after ending the 7-days ultimatum. They have already called mass gatherings on November 22 demanding the removal of JU VC and the punishment of the BCL attackers who beaten up the protesters on November 5.

We just gave some time to the university authorities and the government, so that they could find and amicable solution in this regard. We think, only the resignation of the VC can resolve the crisis”.
