Students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) on Wednesday  continued their protest for the fifth consecutive day to press home their 16-point demand, including cancellation of the new recruitment order of director of student's welfare.
The protesters  are boycotting all the academic activities and have locked up the administrative building and the office of the university's Vice Chancellor (VC).
They staged a sit-in in front of the campus's Shaheed Minar from 11:00am. And later took the street out of the campus. The demonstrated students gave an ultimatum for the non-stop tough movement from Saturday if their demands were not met by the time.
Meanwhile, the Teachers' Association of the university has given a statement urging the university authorities to solve the crisis as soon as possible.
The students have been demonstrating since Saturday for formation of a special committee to build the BUET gate, introducing teacher evaluation system, digitalising students' payment process, increasing allocation in research sector and recruitment of a student-friendly director of student's welfare among others.
