Dhaka, Nov 07 (BAN/ AD): On Thursday PM has said that those protesting against vice chancellor of Jahangirnagar University will have to prove allegations otherwise strict action will be taken against them. The protestors will have to substantiate their claims PM said.
PM said this while distributing grants to the families of journalists who died or were injured in accidents and those affected by ill health and insolvency. For the last few days protest is going on demanding removal of Vice-Chancellor Prof Farzana Islam for alleged corruption.
The university was shut down on Tuesday by authorities for an indefinite period after activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League attacked protesters who demanded that VC Farzana's resignation. But the move has done little to quell the unrest as the protesting teachers and students vowed to continue their demonstrations on the campus.
"They must prove the allegations. If they fail to do so, then everyone who has raised the allegations and those who are giving speeches will face punishment.” Said VC Farzana, Hasina. PM has asked authorities to preserve the video footages of protesters who made the allegations.
