Cabinet secretary: Quota system to be scrutinized
The Ministry of Public Administration will scrutinize the existing quota system and inform the prime minister about it, said Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam on Monday. He made the remark while talking to reporters after a scheduled weekly cabinet meeting at the Bangladesh Secretariat where an unscheduled discussion on quota system was held with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair. "No decision was taken at the meeting on the quota system in public service but it must be scrutinized," Shafiul Alam said. The job seekers on merit lists are deprived much due to the quota system, the meeting observed. It further said no one is undermining the meritorious job seekers and those who are on merit lists are getting greater scope after modification in the [latest] job circular. The cabinet secretary said some 77.40% of job seekers were appointed from the merit list in the 33rd BCS while 67.49% came from the 35th BCS and 70.38% from the 36th BCS. Students and job seekers started demonstrations against the quota system in government jobs on February 17 and their protests took a violent turn following police action at Shahbagh early Monday. On March 7, the government issued a notification relaxing its previous system of preserving vacant posts. Now the posts of different government jobs, which remain vacant for not getting eligible candidates from quota, will be filled from merit lists.
