Ex-student leaders to stage long march: BNP

BNP senior leader and former president of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) Shamsuzzaman Dudu yesterday said ex-student leaders are planning to announce a program like long march towards Dhaka University (DU) demanding reelection to DUCSU.

The BNP leader came up with the assertion while speaking at a discussion in the city. He also expressed solidarity with the demonstrating DU students demanding cancellation of March 11 DUCSU polls.

"Dhaka University is our dream place. We won't accept VC's any whimsical decision about the university. We the former student leaders, including ex-DUCSU VPs and GSs, are in consultation about announcing action programs.

If necessary, we'll stage a long march towards the university," Dudu said.He said the Dhaka University VC must say as to why such a 'questionable' election was held in DUCSU, destroying the university's dignity and reputation.

Elections to Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) and its hall unions were held on Monday, after long 28 years, with the participation of major student bodies.All panels except Bangladesh Chhatra League rejected the election results bringing allegations of irregularities, and demanded reelection.

Dudu, a BNP vice chairman, said it will be tantamount to denial of truth if it is called election what happened on Monday at Dhaka University. He urged the DU authorities to accept the demands of the students for reelection.

Meanwhile, speaking at a human chain in the city, the DAB leaders urged the government to free Khaleda Zia immediately and take steps for admitting her to United Hospital as her health condition is deteriorating every day.
