JU students protest over tree felling
Students of Jahangirnagar University (JU) formed a human chain on the university campus on Wednesday to protest against the construction of buildings by cutting down trees without formulating a master plan.
The human chain programme was held at 1:30 pm on the road adjacent to Shahid Minar of the university with participation of progressive students and activists of environmental organisations.
On the day before, the foundation stone of the new building of the Institute of Business Administration, Jahangirnagar University (IBA-JU) was laid by Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Md Nurul Alam.
However, students estimate that in the proposed site there are several thousand trees.
