The Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has welcomed Nurul Haq Nur, the newly-elected vice president of the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) on Tuesday afternoon.
BCL President Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon went to the Teacher-Student Centre and greeted Nur around 4:00 pm Tuesday in a bid to de-escalate tensions on the campus following Monday’s DUCSU elections.
‘The election has been accomplished. Nur has been selected as the VP. Now, He is the VP of all the students. I request both him and BCL men to show responsibility respectively,’ BCL president Shovon said.
He urged BCL activists not to create chaos over the results saying, “I have failed in the election. Don’t I have pain? Don’t do anything that will tarnish the image of the university. Accept what has happened. The university administration is our guardians. We can not do offence with them.”
He also said, ‘We have to continue class and exams in regular basis. In this regard, I hope responsible response form all.’
Nur edged out Shovon to become the vice president of DUCSU in the polls held after 28 years.
Nur bagged 11,062 votes while Shovon polled 9,129.
