"There is no existence of student organistaions in the campus and residential halls of the university except the ruling party's wing," Major (rtd) Hafiz said while addressing a protest meeting at the National Press Club demanding quick release of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and other political prisoners.
The BNP leader said, "Leaders and activists from other students' organizations would not be able to franchise their voting rights in DUCSU election."

But the DU administration has not shown honour to this demand. They arranged polling centers to the halls so that the leaders, activists and supporters from the other student organizations failed to go their to franchise votes."
