Protests began after an administrative official was reportedly appointed to the university, defying the government order postponing all appointments

Rajshahi University (RU) Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof M Abdus Sobhan has reportedly assured Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists that they would get the highest priorities in getting jobs at the university.

In an audio clip obtained of the conversation between BCL leaders and the VC, Prof Sobhan was heard assuring BCL activists of jobs at the university in the early hours of January 12.

Protesting BCL activists had confined RU VC, two pro-VCs and the proctor to the VC's residence on the university campus on January 11.

They started demonstrating after an administrative official was reportedly appointed to the university, defying the government order that postponed all kinds of appointments until further notice.

In the audio clip, RU VC Prof Sobhan, talking to BCL leaders around 2am on January 12, said: "You have done enough [protest]. I think people who need to understand got your message. 

"I cannot make everything public, there is a problem if I say everything. But InshAllah I will give the highest priorities on your matter [jobs]. Wait and see." 

"Wait for two or four days. You can wage a movement after that," he said, adding that "you will not miss this [jobs]".

Meanwhile, contacted, Prof Sobhan declined to comment on the matter saying he was at a meeting in Dhaka and could not talk at that moment.
