Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal is a student organization of Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Dal (BNP). Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal was established in 1989. The main slogan of Chhatra Dal is - | Education | Unity | Progress |. The head office of this organization is located at Naya Paltan, Dhaka . Many of those currently associated with BNP politics were associated with the nationalist Chhatra Dal.
When Ziaur Rahman founded the BNP, he felt the need to establish a student organization to build its future leadership. So he established this organization centrally on January 1, 1989. Many young people were inspired by Zia's popularity at that time and joined the nationalist student party.
There are basically 3 student organizations in the grooming ground of the nationalist student party. NAP (Bhasani) student organization Jatiya Chhatra Dal, United People's Party (UPP) student organization Biplobi Chhatra Union and Jatiyatabadi Ganatantrik Dal (Jagdal) student organization Jag Chhatra Dal. The Nationalist Chhatra Dal was formed in the chemistry of these three student organizations with the dedicated efforts of Ziaur Rahman and his student advisor Mustafizur Rahman. The late President Ziaur Rahman was an ardent fan of the oppressed public leader Maulana Bhasani. Just before the formation of the Nationalist Front, Ziaur Rahman went to Tangail to seek the blessings of the Maulana. Ziaur Rahman was given the symbol of his party 'Rice Sheaf' and the student organization Jatiya Chhatra Dal.
The first president of Chhatra Dal was Enamul Karim Shaheed and the next convener and president was Golam Sarwar Milon. Both of them came from Bhasani NAP's student organization Jatiya Chhatra Dal.
