According to the students, the final examinations of the public administration department are supposed to take place every 12 months, but they are taking place every 25 months.

Students of Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur (BRUR) on Thursday organized a human chain demanding the resignation of VC Nazmul Ahsan Kalim Ullah as the dean of the public administration department.

According to the students, the final examinations of the public administration department are supposed to take place every 12 months, but they are taking place every 25 months. 

Due to Nazmul Ahsan's absence for months on end, the students claim they have been facing 13 months of session jam.

They also claimed teachers were being made to work for the Jatiya Nirbachan Parjabekkhan Parishad (Janipop) despite there already being a shortage of teachers at the university. 

Two teachers of BRUR confirmed the months-long absence of the VC, and said the VC had refused to act otherwise despite repeated requests.

The VC could not be reached for comment by phone.
