Bangladesh Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader has asked the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BSL), the student wing of the ruling party, to hold its central council in March. He said this while speaking at a rally in Dhaka University campus on Saturday (Jan 6). The BSL organized the rally on the occasion of its founding anniversary, local media reports said.
BSL president Saifur Rahman Sohag presided over the rally and its general secretary SM Jakir Hossain conducted the program. Current and former leaders of the organization attended the function.
Obaidul Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, asked the incumbent leaders of the BSL's central committee to call a meeting of the committee immediately for preparation of the next council.
Last week, a section of BSL leaders at a press conference at Dhaka University's TSC cafeteria demanded immediate holding of council as the tenure of the present committee expired on July 26 last year.
