DU Correspondent :
Students from a procession on the Dhaka University campus on Wednesday demanded immediate publication of gazette notification, reforming quota in civil service jobs.
A day after the government issued the circular for the 40th BCS examination job aspirants demonstrated on the Dhaka University campus and raised the demand from short rally protesting the publication of the circulation for the 40th BCS examination before a gazette reforming the existing quota system. Earlier, the students built country wide protest in February this year asking to reform quota system in government jobs.
The agitating students agitated for realisation of their three-point demands and pledged to remain on the street till the demands were met. The three demands were withdrawal of false cases against them,  exemplary punishment to those who attacked them and reforming the quota system as per their five-point demand.
They first took out a procession from the science faculty library and moved to Shahbagh. From there they came to the central library where they chanted slogans. The procession then paraded streets through to Kala Bhaban, business faculty building, Mohsin Hall and ended in front of the Raju Memorial Sculpture in front of the TSC.
Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council Joint Convener Nurul Huq said, "Despite our legitimate demands, we had been attacked and facing cases. We did not demand annulment of the quota system. We wanted a reform. The PM may annul the quota system, but we demand according to our five-point."
On Tuesday, the quota reformists demanded publication of the gazette on quota-reform before the issuance of the circular of 40th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations. But the government yesterday issued circular for the 40th BCS examination.
