Students’ body to form human chain Wednesday

Published on: 7:47 pm - Tuesday | May 8, 2018

The quota protesters will form human chains at all colleges and universities across the country on Wednesday demanding to publish a gazette based on the Prime Minister’s assurance of abolishing the existing quota system.


General Students’ Rights Protection Council co-convener Nurul Haque came up with the announcement on Tuesday at a press briefing in front of the central library of Dhaka University.
UNB adds: On February 17, students and job seekers started the movement to press for their five-point demand that include introduction of unified age limit in government jobs, review of quota system in government recruitment process, including Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examination, stopping taking benefit by job seekers under the same quota, filling vacant posts from merit list if the candidates from quota are not found and fixation of 10 percent quota instead of existing 56 percent.

However, the quota reform protest turned into a violent movement after April 8.

Following the movement, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on April 11 announced at the National Parliament that there will be no quota system in government jobs anymore.
