Threatens Quota protesters
Bangladesh General Students’ Rights Protection Council, a platform of students that led the recent quota reform movement, on Thursday threatened to a wage tougher movement if the gazette on abolishing the much-talked-about quota system in government jobs is not published within this month, News Agencies report.
Nurul Haque Nur, joint convener of the platform, came up with the ultimatum at a press briefing in front of the Central Library of Dhaka University.
They also urged the authorities concerned to withdraw all the cases filed by police against the protesters and specify the names of those involved in the attack on VC’s residence.
Besides, they decided to arrange discussion meetings among students and teachers on April 30 in all public and private universities across the country over harassment of students over the issue.
On April 11, four cases were filed against unnamed people following the clash and vandalism on the Dhaka University (DU) camps and VC’s residence during the demonstrations for the reform of quota system in government jobs.
On April 16, the council threatened to wage a fresh movement if the cases filed against them during the quota reform movement are not withdrawn.
