New DUCSU leaders take charge
Dhaka: The elected leaders of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) took over their respective charges for one year in its first executive meeting held on Saturday.
The meeting began around 11:30am at the hall room on the 1st floor of DUCSU Bhaban presided over by Dhaka University Vice Chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman and ended around 1:30pm, reports the UNB.
After 28 years, the DUCSU and hall union elections were held on March 11.
Quota reformist leader Nurul Haq Nur, who won the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union vice-president post and later called it an ‘unfair’ election, also assumed the office.
Akhter Hossen, who won the social service affairs secretary post from Nur’s panel, also attended the meeting.
The DUCSU polls were marred by allegations of irregularities. All panels, except that of Bangladesh Chhatra League, boycotted the election. The ruling party student front dominated the polls but lost the posts of VP and social service affairs secretary.
