Quota reformists want gazette soon
Activists of quota reform movement have urged the government to immediately publish a gazette notification in line with their five-point demand within short time.
Leaders and activists of Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council came up with the demand at a press conference in front of the central library at Dhaka University on Tuesday.
Bin Eyamin Mollah, joint convener of the students and job seekers' platform read out a written statement in the press conference.
In the statement, he said that five months have elapsed after the Prime Minister's announcement about abolition of quota system, but no gazette has yet been published that made students frustrated.
“The students had issued an ultimatum to publish a gazette by August 31. Then the Awami League general secretary told students to keep patience. It's a matter of sorrow that we can’t not see any activities done by the administration to publish the gazette,” he added.
He also urged the government to publish the gazette notification within a shortest possible time and before 40th BCS circular. They also demanded to withdraw false cases against students and exemplary punishment to the attackers.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC), within hours of the press conference, published its 40th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) circular seeking applications for the vacant posts.
