Quota reformists on Wednesday demanded a publication of a gazette notification in line with their three-point demand as soon as possible. They took tothe streets since February demanding reform in the quota system in civil service examinations in Bangladesh.

The agitating students re-stated their three-point demand and pledged to remain on the streets till the demands are met.

The three-point demand reads as: withdrawal of false cases against them; exemplary punishment to those who assaulted them; and reforming the quota system as per their five-point demand.

A day after the government issued the circular for the 40th BCS examination, civil service aspirants demonstrated on Dhaka University (DU) campus by organizing a rally to protest the publication of the BCS examcircular without a gazette reforming the existing quota system.

Joint Convener of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council Nurul Huq said: "Despite our legitimate demands, we had been attacked and framed in several cases. We did not demand the abolition of quota system. We wanted a reform.The PM may annul the quota system, but we demand that it is done according to our five-point demand."

On Tuesday, the quota reformists had demanded that the government publish the gazette on quota-reform before the issuance of the circular 40th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations. However, the government issued circular for the 40th BCS examination on the very same day.
