Former president of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon has resigned as Dhaka University (DU) senate member.

On behalf of Shovon, BCL office secretary and DUCSU member Rafikul Islam Sabuj submitted the resignation letter to DU Vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman, also the president of senate, around 4:00pm on Monday.

In his resignation letter, Shovon said he cannot perform anymore as a senate member because of personal problems and urged the senate president to accept his resignation.

Meanwhile, DU VC Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman confirmed the daily sun that he has received the letter.

“We’ll take necessary steps as per the rules,” he added.

On Sunday, a group of students and the left-leaning student body at Dhaka University (DU) demanded exclusion of former president and general secretary of BCL from their posts at the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) and the university senate.
