Freedom fighters and their children in Naogaon formed a human chain on Saturday morning to protest the cancelation of the quota system and demanding its reinstatement.
The hour-long human chain – led by its convener Sirajul Islam – was held in the district’s Muktir Mor area.
During the protest, local MP and freedom fighter Abdul Khalek and Mainul Haque Mukul, son of freedom fighter Advocate Umar Faruq Sumon, spoke.
Speakers said the prime minister should not fall for the trap that is the students’ movement for quota reform as there is a conspiracy behind it.
They demanded the reinstatement of the system immediately, promising stronger movements in the future otherwise.
