Dhaka, May 14 (UNB)- A faction of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Tuesday demanded scrapping the newly-formed committee within 48 hours.
They also sought punishment of those who attacked them on Monday. The BCL faction threatened to start a hunger strike if their demands are not met.
The activists, who were not included in the new committee, made the announcements at a press conference at Modhur Canteen around 1:30pm.
“We’re rejecting this committee,” said BCL’s former publication secretary Saif Babu.
He demanded punishment of the attackers and threatened to resign from the student body if the demands went unheeded.
Nipo Tonne, former deputy cultural affairs secretary of the previous committee, alleged that non-students, drug dealers and criminals got posts in the new committee.
The BCL leaders brought out a procession on the campus after the press conference.
