Protest continues in IU demanding reduction of intake fees
Islamic University, BdChronicle:
The students of Islamic University (IU) continued their protest for the seventh consecutive day on the campus in Kushtia demanding the reduction of admission fees under academic session2017-18.
Witnesses said around one hundred students of different departments demonstrated in front of the university’s administration building and staged a sit-in progrgamme to meet their demand around 12:00am.
Earlier, the protesting students submitted a six-point charter to the university Vice-Chancellor Professor M Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari in this regard.
The agitating students alleged that the university authorities had been increasing the admission fees every year on account of development of its various sectors which was completely illogical.
Meanwhile, Vice-Chancellor M Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari said that they had hiked the admission fees to adjust with other public universities.
