Leftist student’s panel boycotts Ducsu polls

The leftist students’ panel in the Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) election boycotted the ongoing polls today, following allegations of vote-rigging and irregularities.

Liton Nandi, Ducsu vice presidential candidate, announced the polls-boycott from the leftist student’s panel at a press conference held at the Modhur Canteen of the campus around 1pm.

Nandi also alleged that he was chased by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists when he came to file a complaint with the returning officer over irregularities.

Earlier, scores of sealed ballot papers were recovered from a room of Bangladesh-Kuwait Maitree Hall of Dhaka University this morning.

The female students of the hall found the sealed ballot papers inside a sack, minutes after the much-awaited elections to Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) began on Monday.

Sources from the female dormitory claimed some ballot papers were stuffed in favour of Bangladesh Chhatra League nominated panel of the hall in the historic polls.

Dhaka University's Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani has confirmed the allegations.

“Students’ allegations are found true and we are condemning such incidents at the university,” he added. “We will decide next course of actions soon in this regard”.

The authorities have suspended voting at the female hall while the students of the hall seized Dhaka University pro-vice chancellor’s car protesting the ballot-paper rigging.

The voting beings from 8am and continue till 2pm on the day at the 18 university halls.
