Students of different educational institutions staged a demonstration yesterday in Sadar upazila, demanding cancellation of the recruitment examination for primary school teachers.
Sammilito Chhatra Samaj held a rally at Swanirbhar Bazar.
A written test for 358 posts of primary school assistant teachers was held on August 25 under the Hill District Council.
Speakers at the rally said the Hill District Council is being run by unelected and ruling party men, who are not accountable to the people. They said leakage of question papers, recruitment business and corruption are going on in the process of recruitment and demanded immediate cancellation of the examination.
Khagrachhari Parbatya Zilla Susama Union and Durniti Protirodh Committee at a press conference also demanded cancellation of the recruitment test. They said they will start a movement if their demand is not met.
Khagrachari Hill District Council Member Mongsui Pru Chowdhury said the allegation of irregularities in the recruitment of teachers is motivated. The recruitment is being conducted transparently, he added.
