Chhatra League. Only students are supposed to be in the shadow of the organization. But the committee of Bogra District Chhatra League has been so old for the last six years, now the voice of tomorrow has to run ‘comb search’ to find students in that committee! The investigation has revealed the great achievements of the leaders of the huge 156-member committee. 36 leaders including the president have already tied the knot. 47 people involved in various businesses, 18 student leaders in government and private sector. Various cases including murder are pending in the name of 15 leaders. There are also two people’s representatives. There are also allegations of extortion, bullying and drug trafficking against many leaders.
The new committee of Bogra District Chhatra League may be in front. Some of the leaders of the Jhuno Committee are still trying to keep the student spirit alive. Many of them are still ‘unreasonable’ final year postgraduate students! As a result, the central leaders can fall into disarray by selecting real student leaders to form new committees. Interestingly, the leaders of the district committee of Chhatra League engaged themselves in various activities but none of them said goodbye to the organization. Did not resign, did not resign.
Meanwhile, the last conference of Bogra District Chhatra League was held on 7 May 2015. Later on May 11 the committee was announced. The announcement of the full committee took place on December 26, 2016. According to the constitution, the term of the district-upazila and college committee of Chhatra League is one year. However, the term of the Bogra District BCL committee has exceeded six years. So the students are no longer seen in that committee. Now there are people-shown party activities, there is no organizational speed. Due to the absence of committee and organizational activities for a long time, the candidates of the new committee are becoming ineligible due to their age before they get the leadership.

What the leaders are saying: Asadur Rahman Dulu, former president of Bogra district BCL and now joint general secretary of district Awami League, said that what is happening with the expired committee does not go with the ideology of BCL. Leaders like Takbir had to give their lives due to untimely conference and quarrels. Now it has become urgent to form a new committee of the district BCL through the conference.
Bogra District Chhatra League president Naimur Razzak Titas said, “The conference could not be held as the organizational environment was not conducive. Those who have left Chhatra League and gone to other organizations including Awami League cannot stay in Chhatra League. We are trying to solve this problem quickly.
District BCL general secretary Asim Kumar Roy said the conference would be arranged if the center gave instructions. As it has been a long time now, many people do not pay attention to party activities. They themselves want a new committee to be formed through a quick conference.
Those who want to come under the new leadership: If there is a new committee of Chhatra League in Bogra, dozens of leaders are trying in various ways to get the posts of president and general secretary. Among them are Publicity Secretary Mukul Islam, Joint Secretary Mithiles Prasad, Organizing Secretary Arifuzzaman Mridul and Tofail Ahmed Toha; Vice President Ariful Alam Shaon, former city committee general secretary Sheikh Farhan Archi, joint secretary Sajjad Alam Parvez, mass education secretary Sajeeb Saha, members Atiqur Rahman, Touhid Alam, Minhaduzzaman Sajal, Sevit Mandal, Asif Hasan Sijan, Mahfuzar Rahman and Abu Bakkar Siddique.
The situation of other units is also the same: Chhatra League has 19 units in Bogra. Of these, only the committees formed in Gabtali, Kahalu and Nandigram have their terms. Among the other 18 units, the committees of Bogra Municipality, Sonatala Nazir Akhtar Government College, Gabtali Government College and Santahar Government College have been suspended for a long time. The remaining 12 units are now expired.
The government Azizul Haque College Committee of Chhatra League has also expired. The committee announced this branch on November 4, 2016 without a conference. KM Mozammel Hossain was made president and Abdur Rauf general secretary. They could not announce the full committee later. Meanwhile, General Secretary Rauf has been expelled from the party as the main accused in the murder case of fellow district BCL joint secretary Takbir Islam Khan. No action was taken to reorganize the government-run Shah Sultan College Chhatra League committee in Bogra. Activities there have been stagnant for five years. The government Mujibur Rahman Women’s College Committee was dissolved on June 30, 2016 due to its involvement in the admission trade. Since then there is no BCL committee there.
