Sust teachers suspend movement

35A section of pro-Awami League teachers under the banner “Mohan Muktijuddher Chetonay Udbuddho Shikkhak Brindo” yesterday announced suspending their movement demanding the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (Sust) vice-chancellor’s removal.
Citing no reason for the suspension, the forum’s convener, Dr Syed Shamsul Alam, however told that they would not take part in the upcoming admission process for undergraduate courses as VC Prof Aminul Haque Bhuiyan was leading the admission committee.
The forum raised the removal demand and accused the VC of being involved with corruption, nepotism, and misbehaving with colleagues from April 13. That day a heated altercation between the VC and 19 teachers took place when the latter met him to discuss ways for allocating space in an academic building.
After their April 19 ultimatum seeking the removal passed with no change, 35 teachers, including Dr Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, stepped down from 37 administrative posts. The VC refutes the allegations.
A forum member, on condition of anonymity, said the protesters were getting dispirited and divided with the lack of response from the government.
