Students of Jahangirnagar University on Thursday brought out a procession on the campus demanding immediate election of its Central Students' Union.

The students brought out the procession under the banner of Jahangirnagar Sanskritik Jote from the Teacher-Student Centre (TSC) around 11:30am, paraded the campus and held a rally in front of the registrar’s building.

They also submitted a memorandum to JU Vice-Chancellor Professor Farzana Islam in this connection.

"The university administration had assured us of holding the Jahangirnagar University Central Students' Union (Jucsu) polls after the national election but we are yet to see any progress in this regard," said Ashikur Rahman, president of Jahangirnagar Cultural Alliance.

Later, VC Professor Farzana Islam assured the students of holding the Jucsu polls within this year.

The last elections of the Jucsu and hall unions were held in 1992-93.

The movement cames as Dhaka University is gearing up to hold election to its central students’ union (Ducsu) in March.
