BCL men go on the rampage

VC held for 3 hrs, vehicles smashed

Bangladesh Chhatra League activists at Islamic University (IU) yesterday vandalised three university buses and confined the vice-chancellor to his office for three hours, demanding his removal immediately.

The activists of BCL, a pro-Awami League student wing, blocked the Kushtia-Khulna highway for three hours after midday. They also confined the pro-vice chancellor and vandalised his and the VC's offices in their presence.

The Islamic University Bangabandhu Parishad, a teacher front, also demanded removal of the VC M Alauddin and pro-VC Kamal Uddin.

The demand for their removal came three weeks into an academic stalemate following a syndicate meeting on September 7. At the meeting, 152 teachers and other staff were appointed against 76 advertised positions, said campus sources.

The BCL men reported massive irregularities in the recruitment process and demanded its cancellation."The VC appointed his daughter as a lecturer [at the applied chemistry department] and his son-in-law as the treasurer of the university," said Shamsuzzaman Tuhin, general secretary of BCL at the university.

Moreover, he added, at least 30 relatives of the VC and pro-VC got recruited in different posts. "But the VC told us he had appointed BCL men to the posts."Kushtia police rushed to the campus but it was only after the request of Bangabandhu Parishad's leaders that the BCL men lifted the blockade.

Asked about the recruitment of his daughter as a lecturer, the VC said the recruitment committee had selected her and the syndicate approved the selection."I tried to sit with the BCL leaders but they demanded at least 200 jobs for themselves. How can I meet this demand?" the VC told this correspondent.
