A faction of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), a student wing of BNP, on Sunday demonstrated in front of BNP party office demanding removal of age limit to join the new committee.
Hundreds of disgruntled leaders and activists of the recently-dissolved JCD central committee protested at Nayapaltan for about two hours in the morning.
They announced to stage another protest today.
They also demonstrated at the same place on June 11 and kept the main gate of the headquarters locked for 11 hours. They postponed their protests after senior BNP leaders said their demands would be met.
Azmal Hossain Pilot, senior vice-president of the recently dissolved JDC committee, said they resumed their protest since BNP leaders did not fulfil their promises.
He said they would demonstrate peacefully and mount pressure on the BNP high-ups. Azmal said they wanted the BNP to form a short-term JCD committee that would not have any age ceiling.
JCD central committee was dissolved on June 3. A BNP press release signed by Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said a new committee will be formed within the next 45 days based on the opinions of its councillors.
It said candidates planning to contest for various posts will have to be primary members, students of any educational institutions in Bangladesh and must have passed SSC and equivalent examinations after 2000.
JCD's last committee with 153 members was formed on October 14, 2014 with Rajib Ahsan as its President and Akramul Hasan as General Secretary.
