RU students protest hike of meal rate

RU Correspondent


RAJSHAHI UNIVERSITY, July 16:  The students of different departments at the Rajshahi University (RU) under the banner of Progressive Student's Alliance (PSA), a platform of different left-leaning students organisation of the university protested the increased meal rate in all residential dormitories.

They raised their voice from a meeting on Sunday in front of central library. They also protested the university authority's decision to curtail bus trips for the general students.

Earlier PSA activists brought out a rally from its organisational tent rounding the whole campus and ended the meeting.

RU students claimed that authority raised the meal rate in the halls dining without any prior discussion with residential students, even improving the quality of foods.

They criticized the administration for curtailing the number of bus trips from 8 times to 4 times. So the large numbers of students who were living outside the campus have been suffering acute for transportation crisis.

PSA leaders urged to RU authority to resume previous meal rate at dining with bus trips, otherwise they would go for tougher movement with all general students.
