They said they will continue to boycott classes if their demands are not met

Students of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) have, on a fourth day, have suspended their protest—pressing for a 16-point demand—after blocking the roads for over three hours.

They began the protest around 11am, blocked the road near the Buet campus, and staged a sit-in near the Shaheed Minar till 2:30pm.

The students have been protesting since June 15, to implement their 16-point demand that includes: building a visible Buet gate, recruiting a directorate of student welfare through an upstanding recruitment process, renaming the only female residence hall, and improving the residence hall living standards.

The students have boycotted all classes and educational activities since Saturday, but resorted to blocking the roads as there was no response from the administration.

Hundreds of students of all departments and batches have gathered to participate in the protest.

Abu Sadat Mohammad Sayem, 4th year student of Civil Engineering Department said: “We have been trying to contact the Vice-Chancellor since the day the protest began, however he has not responded to us.

“We will continue to boycott classes if our demands are not met.”
