DHAKA: Vice-Chancellor of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) SM Nazrul Islam said the mass resignation letters of the agitating teachers would not be accepted.
He came up with the assertion while talking to journalists over the mass resignation warning of the BUET teachers on Tuesday.
He said, “Mass resignation is not accepted as per the rule, so we will not accept the collective resignation of the demonstrating teachers.”
Mentioning that the teachers are trying to blackmail the administration, he said, “The teachers are enforcing such programme violating the university rule. I do not have any decision in this regard. The syndicate will take all decisions in this regard.”
He added: “Many BUET teachers are now staying abroad. The syndicate may bring them to home in order to face the ongoing crisis if necessary.”
On July 11, some 24 BUET teachers resigned demanding resignation of its VC and Pro-VC.
Of them five are dean, three director and 16 departmental head.
On Monday, the teachers have vowed to resign collectively if its VC and Pro-VC don’t resign within July 22.
