JU VC besieged againNew Age Online
Jahangirnagar University teachers have besieged Professor Anwar Hossain, the Vice-Chancellor, at his office, demanding his resignation.
The VC has been besieged by the teachers who are united under the banner of ‘General Teachers Forum’, since 11.30am.
The teachers were demonstrating and observing a strike programme today and had urged the VC not to join his office as long as their programme continues. As the VC entered in his office, neglecting teachers’ request and involved into altercation with the agitating teachers, they besieged both entry and exit, said an agitating teacher.
The teachers were demonstrating as part of their pre-declared 3-day agitation programme.
‘We changed our programme since the VC ignored our request,’ Professor Hanif Ali, the Convener of the platform, said.
New Age tried several times to reach the VC over phone but failed.
The agitating teachers claimed that Anwar Hossain could not perform since his appointment last year. The university educators had previously besieged the VC office twice and carried out other programmes demanding his resignation.
