Leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League have expressed solidarity with all the demands raised by students for justice in Abrar Fahad murder but opposed the demand for banning student politics.
Top Chhatra League leaders addressed a press briefing at Dhaka University's Madhur Canteen today.
Asked if their Buet unit will be dissolved, acting general secretary Lekhak Bhattacharya said, "Chhatra League is too big an association to shut down any of its branch just for the crime of any individual.
"Besides, the protesters did not place any demand to us. All of their demands were submitted to the university authorities."
Acting Chhatra League president Al-Nahian Khan Joy claimed that vested interests are trying to fish in troubled water, even though Chhatra League and the law enforcement agencies are performing their duties properly to ensure justice for Abrar's murder.
"We have taken all necessary steps and law enforcers are also doing their job, still some people are trying to stir up the situation by demanding ban on student politics. Some are also creating communal tensions and threatening the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina," Al-Nahian added.
"They are also tarnishing the country's image by calling the recent India-Bangladesh agreement anti-national," he added.
