Sust protest reaches DU campus
The wave of protests against the vice chancellor (VC) of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (Sust) has reached the Dhaka University (DU) campus.
On Thursday morning, Chhatra Dal brought out a rally on the DU campus, demanding the resignation of Sust VC Prof Farid Uddin and the withdrawal of a police case filed against the protesting students of the university.
Referring to the arrest of retired prof Tajmeri Islam, who is considered to be pro-BNP, Chhatra Dal President Fazlur Rahman Khokon at the rally said: "We have seen that she was sent to jail in a false case."
"And earlier, Prof Morshed was sacked just for subscribing to the nationalist ideology. University teachers and students are being tortured this way," he added.
Fazlur also came down heavily on the Sust VC and the police for booking the students protesting on their campus. "We demand immediate withdrawal of the case."
"Moreover, if the Sust VC does not resign, the students will wage a movement demanding the resignation of the government," he added.
