The fourth-year students of Jahangirnagar University on Tuesday staged a sit-in programme on the campus, demanding the completion of their honours examinations.

Over 100 students of 45th batch under 2015-16 academic session attended the programme in front of the university’s new administration building around 11.00am to press home their demand.

Addressing the sit-in, Amirul Islam Sujon of Public Administrations department said that the government has already published the circular of 43rd civil service exam but they remained ineligible to apply for it as their honours exams were not completed. 

History department student Nuruzzaman Shuvo alleged that JU authorities remained indifferent to the cause of the students while many other universities like Chittagong University had decided to take the exams postponed earlier.

Earlier, the students of the academic session formed a human chain on the campus and sent a memorandum to vice-chancellor Prof Farzana Islam seeking her intervention in the matter. Acting registrar Rahima Kaniz told that steps would be taken to address the issue after consulting with the administrative body.

All educational institutions remained closed since March 17 due to COVID-19 crisis.
