The mass hunger strike of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council entered the second day on Saturday in front of Jatiya Press Club.
The job seekers sought Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's appointment to place their four-point demand and threatened to continue their hunger strike until their demand is met.
The four-point demand including extension of the maximum age for entry into government jobs from 32 years to 35 years, fixing the application fee at Tk 50-100 and holding recruitment tests at district or upazila level.
The job seekers began their strike on Friday demanding extension of the age limit for government jobs.
