The indefinite class and examination boycott program began on Monday, as the government failed to meet the deadline for publishing the gazette

Cabinet Secretary Md Shafiul Alam has informed that the gazette for quota reform in government jobs is still being processed.

He made the statement in a press briefing held in the conference hall of the Secretariat on Monday, reports Bangla Tribune. 

Shafiul said: "A committee led by the Cabinet secretary has been created by the Ministry of Public Administration to issue the quota reform gazette. The committee sent a summary of minority and female quota to the prime minister's office.

"However, I have not received any directives yet," he continued. "Maybe I will receive them within a few days. As soon as I get the directives, the gazette will be issued immediately."

Students at different colleges and universities across Bangladesh have boycotted classes and examinations protesting government’s failure in publishing a gazette abolishing the quota system.

The indefinite class and examination boycott program began on Monday, as the government failed to meet the deadline for publishing the gazette.
