Faruk Hasan, the chief guest in this program and the Joint convener of the Bangladesh Gono Odhikar Parishad, said in his speech; “Even after passing 53 years of independence, we have not built golden Bangladesh as a country. So far, whoever comes in the rule, party makes his/her pocket heavy, there is no democracy. The ruling party always keeps dangling radish in front of the people. If there is democracy, we need not to protest on the road for the right to vote.”
He added: “In 2018, this organization began working by the movement of the reform of the Quota system. This organization deals with democracy, justice and for the interest of the people of the country. Democracy is the foremost motto of this association, similarly Awami league’s and BNP’s too. But, our democracy is clean-white. On the contrary, their democracy is full of corruption, injustice and deep black. Chhatra Odhikar Parishad has been working to ensure student-right, and it will be continued in the future.”
The central General secretary Ariful Islam Adeeb said Bangladesh Chatra Odhikar Parishad believes in Democratic values. In that continuity, it is being happened centrally among the committee of Dhaka university and Jahangirnagar University. To keep a democratic environment on campus, and for a safe institution, student council elections need to be arranged regularly.”
