Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said the educational activities of the university will restart after the vaccination of the students.
The Education Minister said, “Everyone in the university will be brought under the vaccination programme as soon as possible on priority basis as per the direction of the Prime Minister. Vaccination program will be started with residential students. Halls will be opened after vaccination. Then the classes of the university will restart.”
Dipu Moni made the comment in response to a question in the Parliament on Thursday.
The Education Minister further said the issue of launching a dedicated television channel is under consideration so that students can participate in digital classes throughout the year.
Replying to the same question, the Education Minister said in order to compensate the students, each university has been instructed to prepare recovery plans according to its own capacity and reality and take steps to implement them.
For this a guideline will be sent to the university from the University Grants Commission, she added.
