Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni, Ambassador-at-Large Mohammad Ziauddin, PMO Secretary Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah, Education Secretary Md Mahbub Hossain and Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman were present, among others.

Earlier on November 29, Md Mahabubur Rahman, executive engineer of the Public Work Department (PWD) Dhaka Circle 4, had confirmed that the entire existing TSC establishment would be demolished and a new complex would be built in its place.

The PWD came up with the plan following Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s call on September 2 to modernize Dhaka Medical College Hospital, the DU TSC and the public library in Shahbagh.

Greek architect, planner and theoretician Constantinos Apostolos Doxiadis designed TSC in the early 1960s, and later, the TSC building was built as part of the so-called Decade of Development (between 1958 and 1968) of the then Pakistani military government of General Ayub Khan. 

News of the demolition of the iconic TSC sparked an outcry among students and teachers of the university.
