Jahangirnagar University unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Monday urged agitators of ongoing protest against Vice Chancellor not to hamper educational activities of the university through a letter signed by JU BCL president Jowel Rana.
During strike, Jewel Rana handed over the letter to the teachers and students of the movement around 3.00 pm in front of the old administrative building on the campus.
In the letter they mentioned that Jahangirnagar University Chhatra League concerned that educational environment of the university is being disrupted by ongoing classes and examinations boycott programs and all-out strike. As a result, they fear that students will have to face a long-term session jam. In such situation, Chhatra League is urging protesters to abstain from continuing such programs.
Spokesman of the movement, Prof. Raihan Rayne of Philosophy department said, “Classes and exams boycott programs and all-out strike are the part of our ongoing anti-corruption movement. We will continue our movement until this corrupted Vice Chancellor’s resignation. We have urged the leaders and activists of JU BCL to join with our anti-corruption movement. We hope that they will support and join with our movement.”
When contacted, JU BCL president Jewel Rana said, “Chhatra League is a student friendly organization. So we always think about their interests. Due to the ongoing strike, classes and exams are being disrupted. We fear that students will have to face long term session jam for this movement. So we urged the protesters to abstain from strike and blockade programme.”
