Bangladesh Bank calls urgent meeting following protest over recruitment test mismanagement
Bangladesh Bank Governor Fazle Kabir has called an urgent meeting to discuss the recruitment test of eight state-owned banks, with the aim of solving the current situation. A group of job seekers threatened to go to the court if the recruitment exam was not cancelled. The Bangladesh Bank governor has asked the Bankers Selection Committee and executives of 14 banks and financial institutions to attend the meeting at 11am on Tuesday. Fazle Kabir himself will be chair at the meeting. Fazle Kabir said the meeting has been called to take some decisions following the protest over the recent bank recruitment test. On January 12, Hazrat Shah Ali Women College in Mirpur could not provide seats to hundreds of candidates among 5,600 who had applied for the bank recruitment test. Later, the candidates vandalized the doors and windows of the college. Several allegations of mismanagement were made by applicants from various examination centres on Friday. Later, the candidates launched protests against the exam authorities and demanded the cancellation of the test. On Monday afternoon, police detained two protesters. Subsequently, protesters placed nine-point demands before the authorities, including calls to cancel the test, and threatened stronger protests if their demands were not fulfilled. The recruitment test had 61 designated exam centres in Dhaka, and was seeking candidates to fill  1,663 vacant posts in the eight state-owned banks.
