BNP senior leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain wondered over the desire of Jagannath University VC Mijanur Rahman to take the charge of Jubo League, saying he wants to "do it to indulge in plundering", reports UNB.
"I've seen in newspapers that Jagannath University VC Mijanur Rahman announced to quit his post if he is given the charge of Jubo League. I've got stunned seeing such news. Shame on him!" he said.
The BNP leader further said, "Why does he want to do it? It's possible to run casinos and indulge in tender (manipulation), and there's a scope to plunder thousands of crore taka after taking the charge of Jubo League. Just think about it... what has become the goal of a vice chancellor?"
Mosharraf, a BNP standing committee member, came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Khaleda Zia Mukti Parishad at the National Press Club, demanding BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia's release from jail.
According to media reports, Mijanur Rahman on Friday said he is willing to resign from the post of Jagannath University's VC if he is given the charge of Jubo League to bring the ruling party youth wing back on the right track.
Mosharraf, also a former teacher of Dhaka University, said it is unfortunate that a university VC wants to be the head of a political parity's associate body.
"The VC wants to be the chief of a party's associate body which has earned bad name for corruption and extortion, tender manipulation. What can be the more glaring example than it about the social degradation?"
