The assistant general secretary (AGS) of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) has accused its Vice President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur of pursuing personal agendas instead of working for the union or the university.

Saying VP Nur had never prioritized in attending Ducsu activities, AGS Md Saddam Hussain claimed Nur along with his own platform Bangladesh General Students’ Rights Protection Council (BGSRPC) — which spearheaded last year’s quota reform movement— were working to turn Bangladesh into a fundamentalist state.

Saddam, also Chhatra League’s Dhaka University unit general secretary, came up with the remark at a press conference at Ducsu seminar room on Tuesday.

His remark came following a question regarding Nur’s absence at the press conference.

“Nur has a non-cooperative attitude towards Ducsu programs. He was absent in today’s Education Day program, wreath placing program on National Mourning Day (August 15) and so on,” he added.

“We will discuss the issue of Golam Rabbani regarding his post of Ducsu general secretary after resigning from his Chhatra League post. The decision will be taken as per the constitution.”

Regarding allegations that 34 Chhatra League activists were "illegally" enrolled into the Business Faculty’s evening program (Master of Tax Management), Saddam said: “They are admitted in the program as per the guidelines of the faculty. It is they who decided to admit the university’s students without a written test.”

Only Ducsu leaders elected from Chhatra League panel were present at the program.

Among 25 Ducsu members, 23 are nominated from Chhatra League.
