Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, the student wing of opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, on Saturday brought out a procession on Dhaka University campus to mark the student organisation’s 42nd anniversary.

Around 2,000 leaders and activists of the student organisation, led by its central president Fazlur Rahman Khokon and general secretary Iqbal Hossain Shamol, brought out the procession from the National Shaheed Minar.

The procession, holding portraits of BNP founder and late president Ziaur Rahman and the party chairperson Khaleda Zia, marched through the key points of Dhaka University campus and ended at Doyel Chattar.

Senior joint convener of JCD DU Unit Akhter Hossain, HM Abu Zafar and Baijid Hossain and member Anisur Rahman Khandaker Anik, among others, were present.

The student organisation was founded on January 1, 1979.

On Friday, the organisation also placed wreaths and offered prayer at the grave of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman at Sher-e-Banglanagar in the capital.

On the day, the organisation also held a virtual discussion in which BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman was the chief guest.

Secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, former JCD leaders and present central and district level leaders also took part in the discussion.
