Leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL)’s Dhaka University unit expressed their grati-tude and thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for constructing the Metro Rail station beside the uni-versity’s Teacher-Student Centre (TSC).
A day-long thanksgiving program, titled ‘Metro at TSC: Thank you Sheikh Hasina’, was organized on the premises of the Anti Terrorism Raju Memorial Sculpture under the banner of general students.
DU BCL General Secretary Tanbir Hasan Saikat inaugurated the program at 10:30 am on Saturday.
‘We believe that the Metrorail will alleviate the transportation challenges faced by Dhaka University students,’ DU BCL GS Saikat said.
Following the inauguration, various cultural programs took place, including patriotic songs, displays of placards, posters, and visual exhibitions of various government development initiatives, drawing, art campaign, mass signature-taking drive, and songs thanking Sheikh Hasina.
A joy rally followed, starting from the Raju Memorial Sculpture and proceeding to Shahbag intersec-tion, the TSC Metro Station, and finally returning to the Raju Monument. The first segment of the pro-gram concluded with a color festival around 12:30 pm.
The program’s second segment was commenced in the afternoon. TSC-centric cultural organisations per-formed cultural activities, including mime action, street drama, poem recitation, documentary screen-ings, songs, and music.
‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’ will also be screened as part of the Thanksgiving program.
The inauguration of the TSC Metro Rail station was initially scheduled for Saturday (December 2) but has been postponed to December 7 due to unforeseen circumstances.
