Ducsu polls marred in boycott spree

The long-awaited election to Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) was marred today by boycott of all panels outside that of the ruling party.

Liton Nandi, leftists’ panel leader, made the announcement in a joint press briefing with other panel leaders, five hours after Ducsu elections began.

“This is a farce. We reject the election. We demand fresh election schedule and fresh voting,” said the vice president candidate of Ducsu.

ARM Asifur Rahman, an independent general secretary candidate, announced students strike at campus tomorrow to press home their demand.

They were accompanied by leaders of the quota reform panel, independent panel, and Chhatra Federation panel at the briefing held at Modhur Canteen.

Last reported, the panels and their followers and activists were staging protests at campus.
