JCD calls 3-day strike in all educational institutions from Tuesday

Dhaka, BdChronicle:   BNP’s student wing Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD)  on Monday called a three-day strike in all educational institutions across the country from Tuesday protesting the killing, enforced disappearance and arrest of its leaders and activists ‘by law enforcers’.   JCD president Rajib Ahsan and general secretary Akramul Hasan announced the strike programme through a press release, saying the strike is also meant for mounting pressure on the government to ensure political coexistence in the educational institutions.   The JCD leaders also said they will observe the strike also to press home their demand for holding a fresh election under a non-party government dissolving the current parliament.   Rajib and Akram called upon all the leaders and activists of the BNP student body to spontaneously observe the programme.   Earlier on February 8, the JCD enforced an indefinite strike at Dhaka University demanding resignation of its Vice Chancellor Prof AAMS Arefin Siddique for what it said his failure to ensure political coexistence on the campus.   They said their strike would continue until the democratic rights of all general students are established on the DU campus.
