JU senate meeting Saturday despite protest

  • Published at 03:52 pm June 25th, 2015

Jahangirnagar University authorities are set to hold their annual senate meeting Saturday with expired senate members amid the ongoing protest by the teachers and students.

Sources at JU said the tenure of some 58 JU senate members, out of a total of 93, had already ended. Besides, two student representative posts in the senate committee have been vacant for about two years.

Teacher representative polls supposed to be held about six months ago for the committee failed to see the solution yet despite having passed their tunure.

When asked, JU history department Prof ATM Atikur Rahman acknowledged the matter. However, JU Vice-Chancellor Prof Farzana Islam could not be reached over her cell phone despite several attempts.

Sources went on that the tenure of some 25 registered graduates expired on June 28, 2001 while some 33 teachers’ representatives are on June 25, last year.

Even former JU vice-chancellors Prof Khandaker Mustahidur Rahman, Prof Anwar Hossain, as well as existing one Prof Farzana Islam were elected respectively in 2004, 2012 and 2014 by the expired senators.

JU general students and teachers have been on streets demanding election of the syndicate as well as the expired dean posts.

As part of their movement, they earlier submitted a memorandum over the issue to the VC.
