Bangladesh Chhatra League has accepted the results of the Ducsu polls and will work with all those elected for the development of Dhaka University, says the organization’s President Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon.

Addressing the press at the university campus on Tuesday, Shovon said: "We have accepted the Ducsu polls results.

“We will work with Nur (quota reform movement leader and the newly elected Ducsu vice-president) for the development and progress of Dhaka University and its students."

Addressing the agitated members of the ruling party student wing protesting Nurul Haque Nur's election as the new Ducsu VP, he said: "I know you all are emotional right now. I myself am very emotional too.

"But one has to sacrifice a lot for the stability of the country. We will work with everyone to make Dhaka University better and improved."
