Vice President (VP) elect of DUCSU Nurul Haque Nur said, the students of Dhaka University (DU) want reelection and I am agreed to their demand. I have not taken the charge of VP, whether I would take the charge or not- the decision will come through after consultation with the students with whom I waged movement.
He said these at press conference at Madhu's Canteen of Dhaka University on Sunday afternoon.
Nur said, my stance was clear from the beginning. I want reelection after expressing the same opinion with the general students. The DUCSU election that was held after 28 years, has tarnished the tradition of DU. Being a VP candidate I was also under attack. Teachers were involved in irregularities.
Meanwhile, the panels which boycotted the election will observe class abstaining and sit in program in front of Vice Chancellor's office on Monday to press their five-point demand. The announcement came from the different press conferences by the student organizations.
The demands are- DUCSU election cancellation, declaring reschedule for election, resignation of VC, withdrawal of the cases and punishment for the attackers.
Nurul Haque Nur said, five panels will continue their movement all together over the issue of reelection.
He said, Prime Minister is the ultimate person of the state. I went to Ganabhaban keeping my respect on her. I went there after consulting the matter with the leaders and activists of my organization.
Nur said, DUCSU election is a matter of Dhaka University, not for the government. We were called as the winners. I have informed the Prime Minister about irregularities in the election, besides discussion was also held about problems of the university including residential problem.
