During the program, the leaders of DU officers-employees of Oikya Parishad said that we are continuing the movement under the banner of Oikya Parishad for a week. CCTV cameras have been installed at our meeting place. We are not afraid of this CC camera. Our pension has been slaughtered with a scheme called Pratya Scheme. We don’t accept it, don’t accept it.

The speaker also said that our identity is Dhaka University Officer-Employee Unity Parishad. Even if there is another identity, we do not give that identity. There is Awami League, there is BNP, there is the left. But our identity today is that we are members of Oikya Parishad. You speed up the movement and struggle. Our demands must be accepted.
