The former students of Rajshahi University on Sunday urged the university administration to hold its registered graduate election.

A team of five representatives from the former students submitted an application to the university registrar MA Bari with the signature of three hundred former students of the university.

Rajshahi University Central Students Union former vice-president Ragib Ahsan Munna, former senate members Ayub Ali Khan and Abraham Lincoln were present while submitting the application on behalf of the former students.

After submitting the application, Ragib Ahsan Munna told reporters that according to the RU Act of 1973 there should be ‘twenty-five elected representatives of registered graduates’ in senate.

However, the last election of the university registered graduate was held in 1997, though it was supposed to take place in every three years.

‘We have urged the university authority to take tangible steps to start the process of updating the registered graduate list within fifteen days in order to hold the registered graduate election’, Ragib added.

However, RU registrar MA Bari was not available for his comment over phone despite repeated attempts.
