Supporters want a platform on which student bodies will be treated equally

Comilla University (CoU) students have been considering forming a Comilla University Central Student Union (Coucsu) on their campus; as the much-discussed Dhaka University Central Student Union Ducsu polls are drawing near.

CoU students expressed on social media that they do not want to be left behind; now that many government university central students unions are going to hold elections following the Ducsu polls.

Chhatra League President of CoU unit, Eleas Hossain Sabuj said: "With the Ducsu election slated for March 11—and other public universities planning to organize student unions—CoU students and teachers hope that their longstanding demand for a student union will also be met." 

"If necessary, with the amendment of the university's law and approval of the syndicate, the administrative body will create a medium to represent the students in a fair, well-shaped, and democratic environment on this campus," he added. 

President of CoU IT Society Sayed Makhdum Ullah said that Coucsu will be a platform on which students may speak about their demands and rights. A political leader might be biased, so Coucsu should be formed immediately to ensure equal rights for all students’ organizations."

Commenting on the matter, Organizing Secretary of Bangladesh Jatiotabadi Chhatra Dal of the CoU unit, Mustafizur Rahman Shuvo, said: "In the absence of a student union, politics on the campus has become detrimental. 

“Therefore, for the sake of a healthy political environment on this campus, the authority should arrange Coucsu."

On Sunday, Professor Dr Emran Kabir Choudhury told the Dhaka Tribune: "There are no such rules about forming a student union in the ordinance of Comilla University."

When informed that there are such existing regulations in the university's ordinance, he evaded the question and said the formation of Coucsu is not his concern. 

He said: "If students and the authority want to form it, it might be possible after amending the CoU law and with the syndicate's approval."

CoU was established in 2006 as the 26th public university of Bangladesh; with the aim of imparting quality education, providing knowledge, and enhancing the critical sensibility of the learners in every possible way.
