Bangladesh Chhatra League activists who did not get posts—or were unhappy with the posts they were given—in the new central committee have thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for ordering the exclusion of controversial leaders from it.

Earlier in the day, Hasina, also the Awami League president, instructed the student wing’s leadership to exclude controversial leaders from its recently announced central committee.

During a press briefing held on Thursday at Dhaka University’s (DU’s) Madhur Canteen, former Chhatra League publicity secretary Saif Babu said: “If anyone tries to disobey the prime minister’s instructions, we will take strict action against them.”

Meanwhile, former Chhatra League planning affairs secretary Rakib Hossain demanded dope tests for all members of the central committee. “We will wait till the deadline and see what they [Chhatra League president and general secretary] do.”

Chhatra League’s Kabi Jasim Uddin Hall unit General Secretary Shahed Khan said their demand for reformation was “logical.”

Chhatra League leaders also unveiled the names of 99 leaders—including 16 accused by the party itself—of the Awami League student front who are considered to be “controversial”.
