Tension on the Dhaka University campus is apparently going to be defused as Chhatra League, led by its defeated president, welcomed new Ducsu VP-elect Nurul Haq Nuru on Tuesday afternoon.
Showing a positive gesture, Nuru announced to withdraw their class-boycott programme.
BCL president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon, who was defeated to Nur on Monday’s Ducsu polls, received Nur at TSC around 4:20pm along with his supporters and embraced him amid the presence of leaders and activists of other student organisations.
Later in a brief address, Shovon said, “Nur will fulfill the desires of all of us. That’s why all will have to play a responsible role in maintaining the academic atmosphere of our beloved university.”
Supporting Shovon, Nuru said they have backed off from their decision of boycotting classes. “But we’ll continue our demand for re-election. We’ll work together accepting the verdict of students to protect their interests.”
The long overdue elections to Ducsu and its hall unions were held on Monday.
Quota reform movement leader Nurul Haq Nur was elected vice-president (VP) of the Ducsu while BCL general secretary Golam Rabbani its general secretary. Eight among nine secretary posts went to candidates from BCL panel.
