Jahangirnagar University unit of Bangladesh Chhatra Union demanded reopening of the university and resumption of offline examination following vaccination of residential students immediately.
They also urged the university authorities to provide supplementary financial assistance and scholarship to the needy students through mobile banking.
Acting president of the organisation Tushar Dhar and general secretary Rakibul Rony made the demands in a joint statement issued on Friday.
According to the statement, the student leaders said, ‘Students who have failed to register for the first Covid vaccination campaign by the authority, should be given another chance in order to reopen university soon.’
‘Besides, many university students’ families are suffering economically due to the ongoing pandemic. If the authority starts online examinations following their recent announcement, those students will have to endure additional trouble’, the statement reads.
