Female schoolteacher begs education minister for MPO enlistment
A female schoolteacher in Jessore fell to the feet of Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Thursday begging for the government's Monthly Pay Order (MPO) list to be revised and include the teachers and employees who have yet to be put on the list. The incident took place when the minister was returning to Circuit House from Uposhohor Krira Udyan, after inaugurating the 46th Bangladesh National School and Madrasa Summer Sports competition in the morning. He was surprised to see his motorcade stopped by a sea of several hundred teachers and employees lying on the road in front of Jessore Press Club, blocking the way. The programme was scheduled to be a  human chain by the non-MPO teachers and employees, and turned into a blockade when the minister's motorcade reached the location around 12pm. The protesters chanted various slogans addressing the minister, demanding their enlistment in the MPO. Nurul was compelled to get out of his car, and no sooner had he set his foot on the ground that a female teacher from among the protesters fell at his feet and begged for assistance. She spoke of the financial hardship faced by non-MPO teachers while the minister tried to console her in vain. Police eventually intervened to take her away. Later, the protesters cleared the way to the Circuit House, but only after assurances from the minister that he would take measures for fresh MPO enlistment when the required funds were released from the Ministry of Finance.
