Architecture Department of Bangladesh University in Dhaka expressed solidarity with the students’ demand of safe road which sparked from the death of two college students on 29th July 2018.
In demand of “Safe Road” the general students of different school, college and universities have been protesting on the roads of Dhaka for the last five days. The students are protesting in various forms like human chain, road block, traffic management, document checking etc. all in the demand of a basic citizen’s right “Safety”.
In a press release issued by the department, they said, “We, the faculty members of The Department of Architecture, Bangladesh University, who are witnessing this amazing change that the students are creating we honor them and express our solidarity to stand by them.”
The release also reads, “Cancellation of road permits of certain transport company or penalizing the accused drivers are micro management of a graver situation which might appease the volatile condition for the time being.”
“We demand a larger comprehensive action in a macro scale from the government and the concerned authorities immediately to ensure safe roads and make way for a better future for our next generation,” the press release added.
