The student union of Jahangirnagar University Sangsad has protested on these three demands: quick opening of the new hall, stopping the ‘public room-guestroom culture’ and stopping the extortion of student organizations associated with the ruling party.
On Tuesday afternoon, the protest march started from the Murad Chatwar area of the university and ended in front of the administrative building after passing through several roads. At that time, the protestors held a short rally there.
Alif Mahmud, organizing secretary of students’ union Zabi Sangsad, said in the rally, “The administration cannot give seats even though it is a residential university. Students are subjected to ragging in the common room-guest room without getting a seat. But the administration cannot expel the non-students from the hall. This administration has failed.
“The new halls were promising. The administration is struggling to open those halls. The vice-chancellor promised to open the hall in November last year but has yet to implement it.”
