Dhaka – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina greeted the newly elected leaders of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union as they visited the Gonobhaban, the official residence of the prime minister.
Vice President-elect Nurul Haque Nur and general secretary-election Golam Rabbani led the other office bearers who were elected on March 11 election, which came more than 28 years after the previous election in 1991. A number of leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of the ruling Awami League party, also joined.
Nur, who had boycotted the election halfway alleging that the polls were rigged, was elected VP of the DUCSU under the banner of Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Odhikar Sangrakkhan Parishad, while most of the 25 positions in the student union were won by the BCL candidates.
The newly-elected VP and leaders of the left-leaning student organization, who had boycotted the polls, initially rejected the result and demanded fresh election. But Nur later changed his stance.
Prime minister invited the newly-elected DUCSU leaders on Thursday at a meeting.
Photographs released by the Prime Minister’s Office on the meeting show that Nur had been taking with Prime Minister amiably. Few Bangla newspapers reported that Nur, who lost her mother in his early age, found refection of his mother in Hasina.
