Quota reform is a difficult and complex task, the cabinet secretary says

Cabinet Secretary Shafiul Alam has said that the committee formed to oversee a reform process for the quota system in government jobs has not started working yet.

Speaking to reporters at the end of Monday's cabinet meeting, the secretary, who heads the committee himself, said the committee's work was yet to start.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had told the parliament that a committee with the cabinet secretary at its helm was working to reform the quota system.

Answering a question, Shafiul said the prime minister's decision to abolish all quotas from government jobs cannot immediately be implemented.

“It will take some time,” he said.

“The committee has not started working yet. Quota reform is not as simple as you might think. This is a difficult and complex task,” he said.

“Right now the work is being done at the lower levels. It will be sometime before it comes to the upper level,” he added.
