'BNP in a dilemma over JCD'

BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy has said that the party is in a dilemma over tackling the demonstrations by the Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal demanding the formation of a new JCD body. Roy was speaking with reporters at his Nayapaltan chamber in the city yesterday.

In response to a question regarding the ongoing demonstrations by the JCD, the student wing of the BNP, Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said, "We are in a dilemma over the issue. The students have served jail terms, been implicated in false cases and faced police harassment. What will they get in return for their sacrifices?”

“How will they be evaluated? Who is responsible for this? None is responsible as a political party cannot do its work in a proper manner if there is no democratic environment," he said.

Gayeshwar went on to say, "The Chhatra Dal is a big organization. It has a tradition of movement and struggle behind it. But the organization has not been able to uphold this legacy. Nevertheless, it tries to do so." Gayeshwar Roy noted that "students are supposed to remain in colleges and universities.

But they have not been able to enter the campuses for 12 long years. For this reason, they cannot engage in campus-based activities."  Laying emphasis on the regular council of Chhatra Dal, the senior BNP leader said that there is no environment for holding a council in the country.

Consequently, organising councils is being delayed, resulting in the expiry of the studentship of many student leaders. If the councils had been held on a regular basis, student leaders would be rewarded in line with their contributions to the party.

"We will try to resolve the issue as soon as possible by talking to the demonstrating JCD leaders. I believe they will comply with our directives," said a confident-sounding Gayeshwar Roy.
