Cancel quota in BCS
Around 100 students of Rajshahi University yesterday formed a human chain and brought out a procession on the campus demanding cancellation of 55 per cent quota in appointments under Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS).
Terming the quota system 'negligence to majority of candidates', they urged the government to ensure merit-basis appointments in civil service.
Under BCS, 55 per cent appointments are made under four quotas -- freedom fighters (30 per cent), women (10 per cent), district (10 per cent) and indigenous (five per cent).
The students vowed to continue their agitation until their demand for cancellation of the quota system is met.
