Restoration of RU Ambulance Service
Students submit memorandum to VC
Following The Daily Star’s August 4 report “Both RU ambulances out of order”, some 100 students of Bangabandhu Hall of Rajshahi University yesterday submitted a memorandum to the vice-chancellor demanding restoration of ambulance services.
The memorandum, containing signatures of over 200 students, was handed over to VC Prof Abdus Sobhan at his residence around 10:00am.
After receiving the memorandum, Prof Sobhan assured to restore the ambulance service within 24 hours, said the students.
The Daily Star could not contact the VC for comment.
The ambulances of Rajshahi University Medical Center (RUMC) were allegedly vandalised by some unidentified RU students on May 24 when the centre authorities refused to bring a student to the centre from a hospital.
The university authorities do not seem to have any plan to put the ambulances back to service immediately, said the students earlier.
Many of RU’s 30,000 students, teachers and staff who regularly seek treatment at RUMC say the problem arises when RUMC doctors refer patients of complicated cases to other places for further treatment.
