The High Court on Monday issued a ruling seeking explanation as to why the final test results of assistant teacher recruitment to government primary schools should not be declared illegal.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman issued the ruling after hearing a writ petition, reports UNB.

Advocate Md Kamal Hossain stood for the petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukdar represented the state.

The court also wanted to know in the rule as to why the respondents should not be directed to publish a fresh result as per Section 7 of the rules of the primary teacher recruitment policy-2013 after cancelling the published result.

The Secretary to the Primary and Mass Education Ministry, Director General of Primary Education Directorate and others concerned were asked to respond to the ruling within 10 days.

Kamal Hossain said:  “As per as the primary school teacher recruitment rules- 2013, the vacant posts must be filled with 60 % women candidates, 20 % dependents and the remaining 20 % male candidates.

A total of 18,147 candidates were qualified in the written tests for the post of assistant teachers in the government primary schools. The results of the written examination were published on December 24, 2019, said a press release of Primary Education Department.

Sixteen candidates filed the writ as the recruitment test results published did not follow the rules.
