Ban aimed at BCL’s terrorist acts: DUCSU VP
Vice President of the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) and leaders of left leaning led Progressive Alliance on Saturday said the demand
for banning students' politics have been raised against Chhatra League's terrorist activities.
They came up with the comments at separate press conferences held at the Madhu's Canteen of the Dhaka University in the afternoon.
DUCSU VP Nurul Haque Nur said all have to raise their voice against tainted student politics which works for a particular party rather than for the students' welfare.
He also claimed, "BUET students have demanded ban on organization based-student politics which means banning politics of terrorist organizations." It is known to all which student body leaders killed Abrar, he added.
"Student politics is practiced in almost all countries and will be there. Students union polls must be held to create student leadership in the country by electing meritorious students," he added.
He also alleged that not only the students but the university administration is also responsible for tainting student politics as the authority do not discharge its duty properly.
Citing 151 incidents of killing on campuses since Independence Nur said, "It is happening again and again only for the culture of impunity."
He also placed a five-point demand including justice for Abrar murder under speedy tribunal, abolishing mass rooms and taking over dormitories occupied by student bodies to ensure security on the campus, hold student unions polls in all colleges and universities across the country and recruit neutral teachers in important posts including VCs to ensure student friendly environment on the campuses.
Meanwhile, left leaning student bodies led progressive alliance protested the ban on student politics on BUET campus. They claimed students' agitation was not against student politics rather it was against the ruling party student wing. They also demanded ban on activities of BCL at all university campuses across the country bringing allegation of terrorist activities against the students body.
