PM wants vision impaired jobseekers’ problems solved

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday directed the Public Administration Ministry to take necessary steps to resolve the problems jobseekers with vision impairment face.

She gave the directive when a six-member delegation of Chakuri Protyasi Drishti Protibandhi Parishad, an organization representing such jobseekers, met the prime minister at her official residence Ganabhaban in Dhaka, reports UNB.

Briefing reporters afterwards, the prime minister’s Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokon said the delegation members put forward a six-point demand in front of her during the meeting.

The demands include reintroduction of quota in the public service and arrangement of special Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) test for them.

Besides, they demanded appointing them as resource teachers in all 64 districts of the country under the Social Welfare Ministry.

The delegation also thanked the prime minister for giving them first and second class jobs in the public service in 2012, providing them bank loans and waiving tax to their job employees.

State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain and Public Administration Secretary Faiz Ahmed were present during the meeting.
