The Directorate General of Food is being held accountable for not responding to previous applicants before floating a new circular   

The High Court has directed the Directorate General of Food (DG Food) to address those who responded to a circular published in 2014.

The court granted the authorities 30 days, to come to  a decision regarding the 8 lakh candidates who were left unanswered.

The bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam, gave the order after hearing a writ filed by one of the applicants, Md Enamul Haque, on Wednesday.

Advocate Ishrat Hasan stood for the writ, while Deputy Attorney General Pratikar Chakma, and AKM Amin Uddin Manik, stood for the state.

According to the writ petition filed, in 2014, the DG Food floated a job circular for 599 available posts, against which 8 lakh applicants had applied.

However, in November 17, 2018, the authorities floated another job circular citing more than a thousand available posts, without responding to the previous one.

The applicants who applied in 2014, therefore requested the authorities to grant them permission to reapply, which was rejected.
