DU students stage demo demanding end to affiliation of 7 colleges

Desk Report |

A group of Dhaka University students blocked the Shahbagh crossing on Wednesday demanding an end to the university’s affiliation with seven colleges.

Mostakim Ahmed, leader of the demonstrators, said, ‘We are demanding an end to the affiliation as DU does not have the capability to bear the burden of seven colleges.’

About 300 students, under the banner of general students, took to the street around noon, halting vehicular movement on the busy road.

Traffic movement from New Market to Matshya Bhaban and Shahbagh to Farmgate remained suspended due to the blockade, causing immense sufferings to the commuters.

The demonstrating students demanded that the authorities should accede to their four-point demand that included publishing results within two months of the exam, and banning mass-transport on the campus.

The seven affiliated colleges are — Dhaka College, Eden Mohila College, Government Shaheed Suhrawardy College, Kabi Nazrul Government College, Begum Badrunnesa Government Women’s College, Mirpur Government Bangla College and Government Titumir College.
