The committee has been asked to submit report in 15 working days

The government has formed a seven-member committee, with Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam as its convener, to review the existing quota system in public service.

"The committee has been formed to review, reform, or revoke the existing quota system in government jobs," public relations officer of the Public Administration Ministry Mominul Hoque told UNB on Monday night.

The other members of the committee are secretaries of the Public Administration, Finance Division, Liberation War Affairs, Legislative Division and PSC and PMO acting secretary, he said.

The committee has been asked to submit its report within 15 working days.

In April, students from public and private universities across the country waged a movement demanding reforms to the quota system.

Addressing the movement, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina announced, in parliament on April 11, the abolition of all types of quotas in public jobs.

As no gazette notification has so far been issued regarding the abolishment of the quota system as per the PM's declaration, the leaders of the council gathered in front DU central library on Saturday to hold a pre-scheduled press conference to announce their fresh programme.

But, Bangladesh Chhatra League activists reportedly carried out an attack on them, triggering protests at different universities in the country.
