JU teachers stage demo in front of VC residence

Savar – Agitating teachers of Jahangirnagar University (JU) on Tuesday went on a sit-in programme in front of the residence of
Vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Anwar Hossain demanding his immediate resignation.
However, Prof Anwar was not at his residence when the sit-in was staged on Tuesday.
Later, the teachers held a press conference on the JU campus from where they threatened to continue their sit-in until the removal of the VC.
The teachers under the banner of ‘Sadharon Shikklhak Forum’ have been on a movement since long for realising their 12-point demand,
including the resignation of the VC.
The resignation demand came as the VC did not take proper punitive measures against JU unit BCL secretary Razib Ahmed Rasel for
assaulting Nurul Haque, a lecturer of Economics Department, and also a syndicate member.
The teachers have also brought allegations of various irregularities and corruption against the VC.
Meanwhile, the agitating teachers confined the university registrar for the second day on Tuesday for what they said giving illegal
appointment of deans to three faculties.
Despite repeated attempts, VC Prof Anwar could not be contacted on phone for his version over the matter. – UNB
