Left student bodies demand removal of DUCSU GS Rabbani
Pragotishil Chhatra Jote, a platform of left-leaning student bodies, on Monday demanded removal of Dhaka University Central Student Union (DUCSU) General Secretary Golam Rabbani for his involvement in corruption.
They made the demand from a press conference held at the Madhu's Canteen of Dhaka University.
The platform leaders said someone who had been expelled from his own organization on corruption charges cannot hold a position in DUCSU.
"The last DUCSU election was illegal and rigged. To preserve DUCSU's honour we demand a re-election."
Meanwhile, Golam Rabbani, who was removed from the Bangladesh Chhatra League as its general secretary, urged Awami League Chief Sheikh Hasina to forgive his past misdeeds.
On Monday, Rabbani, who faced charges of extortion, used his Facebook account to beg the party chief's forgiveness.
Both Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon, president of Chhatra League, the student wing of the ruling party Awami League, and Rabbani were removed from their positions as there were complaints of extortion against them.
"Our affectionate leader, I regret that I've hurt you; I beg your forgiveness for it," Rabbani wrote on Facebook.
Former President of Bangladesh Chhatra League president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon resigned from the post of Dhaka University senate member on Monday.
Rabbani's removal from Bangladesh Chhatra League as its general secretary for extortion has raised questions over his position as the General Secretary in the Dhaka University Central Students Union.
