Parliamentary committee in favour of reforming, rather than abolishing, quota system
A parliamentary committee related to the Ministry of Public Administration has given its support towards reforming the quota system rather than abolishing it. Now, the ministry is waiting for the prime minister's instructions regarding the quota system, based upon which a final decision will be reached. Extensive discussions were held in a meeting held by the parliamentary committee in the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban regarding the quota system on Sunday, according to sources from the meeting. In the meeting presided over by the committee President AHN Ashiqur Rahman, State Minister for Public Administration Ismat Ara Sadique, ABM Fazle Karim Chowdhury, RAM Obaidul Muqtadir Chowdhury, Mustafa Lutfullah, Khorshed Ara Haque, Joya Sengupta, and several others were present. Talking about the quota system in government jobs, committee President Ashiqur Rahman said: "Even though the prime minister has talked about abolishing the quota system, we have some responsibility towards the country. "We have responsibility towards the history of the liberation war," continued Ashiqur. "Also towards different regions inside the country. The constitution talks about equality. In that case, we also have a responsibility to create equal opportunities for the minorities." Ashiqur further informed that considering all of these aspects, the discussants in the meeting talked about a logical reformation, rather than complete abolishment, of the quota system. At the same time, discussions were made about ascertaining that no third party would try to take advantage of the situation. According to sources, during the meeting, Secretary of Public Administration Dr Md Mozammel Haque Khan said they were waiting for the prime minister's directives. After she comes back to the country, the ministry will implement the prime minister's decision. On the other hand, a proposal was forwarded to scrap the existing recruitment process of hiring teachers in private education institutions, and replace it with the previous process. Speaking on this topic, the committee president said: "We have observed several problems in the way NTRCA employs teachers in private education institutions. Their merit or patriotism are hardly taken into account. "For this reason, we have proposed that rather than the NTRCA, the governing body of the institutions should hire those who pass the registration exams," said the president. In the meeting, other topics such as the processes used to issue question papers in different public examinations under the Education Ministry, and the security and secrecy of the whole process, were discussed.
