Shovon resigns from DU senate

Showing personal reason, former Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) President Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon on Monday submitted his resignation letter to vice-chancellor of Dhaka University for withdrawing him as a senate member, reports BSS.

BCL Office Secretary Ahsan Habib and DUCSU member Rafiqul Islam Sabuj submitted the resignation letter on behalf of Shovon to the VC, also president of senate, around 4:00pm. Confirming the matter, DU VC Professor Akhtaruzzaman said, “We will take next course of action following the rules and regulation of the university.”

“I became student representative in senate from BCL, now I am not belonging to BCL committee. I have also some personal causes to resign from senate,” Shovon told BSS. Four other DUCSU-nominated students’ representatives of senate comprising 105 members are- DUCSU Vice-President (VP) Nurul Haq Nur, DUCSU General Secretary (GS) Golam Rabbani, BCL DU unit president Sonjit Chandra Das and DUCSU member Tilottoma Sikder.

On September 15, Shovon and Rabbani were removed from the posts of BCL President and general secretary respectively at a meeting of the Awami League Central Working Committee held at Ganabhaban with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
