A section of students of 7 affiliated colleges of Dhaka University on Saturday protested claiming DU authorities were indifferent to implementing their demands.
Protesting students staged a human chain in front of National Press Club to press home their seven point demand.
They demanded to start next session classes online and publishing results within three months after exams to lessen logjam and livening academic activities.
They also demanded to take exams of 2015-16 and 2016-17 regular session exams and completing 2012-13 session ongoing degree pass course special exams immediately.
All the examinations have to be taken very quickly and all the results including Degree Honors Masters have to be re-evaluated with the reasons for mass failure, they sought.
Addressing the protest, students said despite their repeated demands and repeated protests, the university authorities could not come up with a solution. So the suffering of students has increased.
In the human chain, the students have sought the intervention of the Prime Minister to solve the ongoing problems of seven colleges.
Notably, on February 16, 2017, the seven renowned government colleges in the capital were affiliated with Dhaka University following the directives of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the education ministry.
The affiliated colleges are Dhaka College, Eden Mohila College, Government Shaheed Suhrawardy College, Kabi Nazrul Government College, Begum Badrunnesa Govt. Women College, Mirpur Government Bangla College and Government Titumir College.
After affiliation of the colleges with DU, the students of the seven institutions were happy. But they are now becoming frustrated as they cannot complete their studies in due time.
