Entire student community not responsible for BCL’s misdeeds, Rizvi says

Stating that the entire student community should not be blamed for the misdeeds of Bangladesh Chhatra League, BNP has voiced a strong opposition against imposing any ban on student politics.

“A move to ban student politics on the pretext of bad politics, including terrorism, corruption and bloodshed, is part of a deep-rooted master plan,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said on Monday, reports UNB

Speaking at a press conference at the party’s central office at Naya Paltan, he further said: “Those who spoiled student politics, and demeaned it by encouraging violence, grouping, and abetting in establishing supremacy on campuses are now trying to ban it.”

He said students are the enlightened section of society, who identify the anomalies of the state, and put up resistance against those.

“The student community has been standing against unfairness, injustice, and inequality in society for ages. They sacrificed blood by joining the Language Movement, Liberation War, and other democratic movements,” he added.

The BNP leader alleged that the ruling party has tarnished the glorious traditions of the student community.

Rizvi further added: “After the country’s independence, the journey of Chhatra League began through snatching ballot boxes, and assaulting female students at the Shaheed Minar. Their successors have now developed cruel, and destructive torture system at university halls ignoring the rules and regulations.”

Rizvi also accused the ruling party student wing of setting up torture cells at different halls with the backing from the government. 

“Students were killed one after another by Chhatra League. The killing of Buet’s talented student Abrar Fahad is the manifestation of such dangerous acts by Chhatra League,” the BNP leader said.

He also alleged that Chhatra League has been raised, over recent years, in such a way that they do not bother about any social values, and ethics. “The student community or student politics cannot be blamed for their misdeeds.”

The BNP leader said a negative impression has been created among common people about student politics due to the unruly activities, and intra-party violence of Chhatra League. “The government has created such a situation in a planned way.” 

“Chhatra League is nothing but an oppressive organization without self-respect. So, it’s not appropriate to put student politics on the dock due to its activities,” he added.

About the elections in Chittagong’s Satkania, and Jhenaidah’s Maheshpur Upazila Parishads, he said the ruling party men indulged in vote rigging by driving out the BNP polling agents from polling stations.

He also said the ruling party “cadres” obstructed voters from going to the polling stations by taking position on the streets with rods, sticks, and sharp weapons. “There has been a festival of deception in the two upazilas in the name of voting.”
