Dhaka University Teachers Association urged the students to return to school and stop the ongoing movement for ensuring safety on roads.
DUTA issued a statement signed by its president Professor ASM Maksud Kamal and general secretary Shibli Rubayat-ul-Islamon Saturday evening in this regard.
DUTA said, ‘We expressed solidarity with the student’s ongoing movement on August 2 as we have found logic behind this. We also urged the government to take necessary steps to fulfill the nine point demands of students.’
‘The government has taken all steps to fulfill student’s demands. We hoped the students return class as the government had taken steps to fulfill their demands. But today we saw they continue the movement. We also saw, some political parties are trying to achieve political benefit from this movement,’ it said.
‘In this situation we hope the students will realise that blocking the road for a long time cause misery to the citizens and they will return to their classes as their demands will be fulfilled in phases,’ it added.
