Staff Correspondent - January 20th, 2013

Around 140 teachers belonging to Pro- Awami League Teachers Association Bangabandhu Parishad Islamic University (IU) unit urged the authority to ensure security for the teachers so that they can go there and attend classes without fear.
They made this call in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon held at University Club in Kushtia town.
Besides, in separate statements on the same day around 110 pro-BNP teachers organisation Zia Parishad and 90 pro-Jamaat teachers association Green Forum made a same call.
Bangabandhu Parishad secretary Prof Ruhul KM Saleh in his written statement alleged that the stalemate in the university does not solve despite appointment of new Vice-Chancellor due to playing his (new VC) ‘partial’ role within 18 days of recruiting here.
“The new VC is patronising the people was involved in corruption during the tenure of previous VC, Pro-VC even they are still holding important posts including the post of Proctor,” Prof Ruhul KM Saleh claimed.
The teachers leader alleged that despite their repeated calls, VC did not take any step to replace them.
“He also even abstained to take any step when the teachers were attacked in their lounge on Saturday though the teachers sought to save their souls,” told the Pro-government teachers leader.
The teachers must go to class when they will feel enough security in the campus, he said.
Vice-President of the Parishad Professor Moniruzzaman, Prof. Mahbubur Rahman, Prof Mahbubur Rahman (2), Prof Jahangir Hossain, Professor Mamunur Rahman   and Dr. Saidur Rahman presented in the press conference among others.
