Students and job seekers blocked the Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka to enforce their “Bangla Blockade” programme on Thursday, demanding a logical reformation in the quota system in government jobs.

Although they were scheduled to throng in front of the central library of Dhaka University around 3:30pm, it took them time to gather at the spot due to rain.

While several thousand demonstrators marched towards the busy intersection, a large number of the police took position there, erecting barricades to resist the blockade programme. 

At one stage, the protesting demonstrators broke the barriers and blocked Shahbagh around 5:10pm.

Hours before, activists and leaders of the Bangladesh Chhatra League, student wing of the ruling Awami League, also gathered at Madhur Canteen.
