Ruling Awami League's student wing Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Thursday urged the education ministry to construct more residential halls, enrich libraries and reduce session jam in public universities, reports BSS.

"Students' sufficient accommodation and transport facilities, modernised libraries and laboratories, regular classes and exams, proper students-teachers ratio, transparency in teachers' recruitment, fair evaluation of exam papers, safe food and water and security on the campus should be ensured," observed BCL representatives from 32 public universities of the country.

The BCL leaders came up with the observations while addressing an education dialogue titled "Challenges and Possibility in Higher Education" held at International Mother Language Institute in the city.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni, Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hassan Chowdhoury Nowfel, BCL President Md Rezwanul Hoque Chowdhury Shovon and BCL General Secretary (GS) Golam Rabbani were present.

Addressing the discussion, Dr Dipu Moni urged the BCL leaders to make the campuses free from drugs, violence, militancy and sexual harassment.

She stressed on introducing "coding system' in students' examination papers for ensuring fairness in evaluation, strengthening the University Grants Commission (UGC) and students' counselling in the universities.

"The education ministry is trying to modernise curriculums, ensuring transparency in the recruitment process of teachers, revising admission test process and rooting out question paper leakage," said Dipu Moni.
