Senior Correspondent: Awami League (AL) Acting General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif has aggro of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists at Madhur Canteen on Dhaka University campus is a trifling matter.
“We have nothing to express concern over the issue. It’s a trifling matter. We think, president and secretary of the student body would settle the issue,” He said.
Hanif came up with the remarks while addressing a press conference at the party’s President Sheikh Hasina’s Dhanmondi office in Dhaka on Tuesday.
In reply to a query, Hanif said Chhatra League is a big organisation. After the announcement of such a big organisation, a group of leaders and activists suffer from dissatisfaction usually as expectations all the aspirant leaders are not fulfilled through the committee.
The 301-member full-fledged central committee of the BCL was announced on Monday touching off controversy and protest by some of those who could not make it to the new committee.
At least 200 deprived leaders and activists of BCL staged a demonstration on the campus, protesting the inclusion of controversial persons in the committee. At that time, at least 20 BCL activists were hurt in an attack carried out by followers of many securing posts.
An attempt to hold a press conference at Madhur Canteen in the evening was foiled in the attack.
