CU Fresher's are Deprived of Rights
Fresher's of Chittagong University (CU) are being deprived of their rights due to the CU Central Students Union (CUCSU) election not being held for a long time. It is a clear violation of Chittagong University Act -1973.
Members of the senate, the highest policy making body, are also putting emphasis on holding election in two categories (registered graduate and teachers representatives) to accommodate the fresher's.
The university sources said there are 86 members in the senate in seven categories.
Of the four categories, the government nominates five officials, the speaker nominates five parliament members, the chancellor nominates five noted educationists and the university syndicate nominates five members from various research institutions. In these categories, new members are being nominated on a regular basis.
Moreover, the VC, pro-VC and the chairman of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board, Comilla, are ex-officio members of the senate. But there are also seats for five student representatives in the senate, nominated by CUCSU. But, the election to CUCSU is not being held for more than 22 years too.
Prof Anwarul Azim Arif, vice-chancellor of CU told about this, election to the teachers' representatives of senate will be arranged soon.
After holding the election to the teachers' representatives, initiatives will be taken to hold the election to the registered graduate representatives, the CU VC added.
