Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Hasnat Abdullah, a master’s student of the English Department, broke his hunger strike to demand an end to harassment caused by the administrative complications of Dhaka University (DU). Md. Akhtaruzzaman.

“None of our students should waste valuable time by coming to the registrar’s building. During that time they should study, hang out in the seminar room and go to the library. They will not come to the Registrar’s building under any circumstances. All work will be done in the hall and library. If someone is harassed there, action will be taken through the provost and chairman.’

At this time, the general secretary of the teachers’ association Nizamul Haque Bhuiyan, proctor professor Dr. AKM Golam Rabbani, Assistant Proctor and teachers of the department were present.

6. Modern secretarial, professional, human and behavioral training of officers should be made mandatory by law. If necessary, the mental service departments and centers located in the university should be resorted to.

7. Administrative officers and employees shall not engage in any personal, business or political activities while in office. In that regard, the employees union office located inside the administrative building must ensure the transfer to their clubs compulsorily.
