The leaders of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) have paid respects separately to the martyrs of the 1952 Language Movement, marking the Language Martyrs' Day and International Mother Language Day.

The leaders, divided into two factions, paid their tributes at the Central Shaheed Minar in Dhaka on Friday.

One group was led by Ducsu Vice President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur while the other was led by Ducsu General Secretary (GS) Golam Rabbani, also a former general secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League.

Flanked by other leaders, Rabbani along with Ducsu Assistant General Secretary (AGS) Md Saddam Hussain placed a wreath at the Shaheed Minar first, and Nur appeared there later to place another wreath to pay their homage to language martyrs.

This is the first incident for Ducsu to pay tribute separately in any national event since 1991 when its last committee was dissolved.

Followers of Nur and Rabbani are at loggerheads over different issues and their relations turned worse especially during the Ducsu polls, when Nur and some of his supporters were attacked on the election day.

Ducsu and Dhaka University hall unions got new office bearers in an election held on March 11, 2019, after 28 years of hiatus. The second last Ducsu election was held on June 6, 1990 when HM Ershad was president and the student body played a significant role in ousting the dictator.
