Quota reform demonstrations continue
Students are continuing demonstration on Dhaka University (DU) campus demanding reforms of the quota system in government recruitment tests. Several thousand students of various colleges and private universities are chanting slogans blocking all roads into the DU campus. The protestors gathered at the TSC on Wednesday morning. Later they brought out a procession around 11am on the campus chanting slogans against Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury for her remarks. The minister termed the demonstrators as “children of Razakars”. The students were heard chanting `Bangabandhur Banglai Boishommer Thai Nai’ (there is no place of discrimination in the Bangla of Bangabandhu).

Meanwhile, students of Jagannath University blocked different roads in old Dhaka including the busy English Road and Dhaka-Mawa road. Earlier on Tuesday, groups of students continued demonstrations around the campus, demanding quota reform. Protesters who had refrained from demonstrating made a comeback, announcing new programs and new demands. On Monday, a 20-member delegation of protesters met with Road Transport Minister Obaidul Quader and reached an agreement that the movement would be suspended until May 7, by which time the government would find a solution. But many protesters on the ground rejected the talks and continued to demonstrate.
