Nurul Haq Nur, joint-convener of Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Adhikar Sangrakshan Parishad, who won the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) polls as the Vice-President has stated that he will take charge on Saturday amid speculations.
Nur made the announcement while speaking at a press conference at Madhur Canteen on the university campus on Friday afternoon.
“The election was not fair. We concur with the panels demanding re-election and will continue demonstration for fresh polls,” said Nur.
Nur, a prominent leader of the quota reform movement, said, “Dhaka University authorities failed to hold free and fair election.”
The VP-elect said that he is joining DUCSU “prioritising the students’ demands”.
Akhter Hossen, who won the social service affairs secretary post from Nur’s panel, will also join the students’ body.
“We’ll officially take charge as DUCSU representatives and work together with general students for solving various problems,” the DUCSU VP-elect said.
The DUCSU polls, the first in 28 years, were marred by allegations of irregularities. All panels, except that of Bangladesh Chhatra League, boycotted the election. The ruling party student front dominated the polls but lost the posts of VP and social service affairs secretary.
