Expressing doubt about a fair election of the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) to be held on March 11 after around three decades, BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan has said where the Awami League is in power and the university authorities work under the government, holding a free and fair election will be a challenge.
He came up with the doubt after placing a wreath at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman's grave along with the newly-formed convening committee members of the Doctors' Association of Bangladesh (DAB) yesterday.
The senior BNP leader said there's a reason to be worried over the Ducsu polls as the university authorities have been appointed by the government. But we hope the students will put in their all-out efforts to ensure credible elections in their institution.
He thinks the battle of ballot in the DUCSU elections will be held between the pro-democratic and anti-democratic forces. I hope, the pro-democratic forces will surely come out successful in the polls.
Mentioning that a proper election atmosphere is not yet to be created on Dhaka University campus, he said the ruling party assured all of not creating any barrier to ensuring a congenial atmosphere on the campus. We want to believe them.
The BNP leader said their party also wants all the student organists to get the scope for participating in the elections, and the students to elect their representatives through casting their votes freely in a congenial atmosphere.
The elections to Ducsu and its hall unions for 25 posts will be held on March 11 as per the scheduled announced by the Chief Returning Officer Prof Mahfuzur Rahman on Monday morning at Nawab Nabab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban.
