PV Desk : The quota committee will submit a report with recommendations for review, reform and cancellation of the existing quota system in public service recruitment within 15 working days.

The joint secretary of Public Administration Ministry Abul Kashem Md Mohiuddin said it to reporters after the first meeting of the quota committee at secretariat on Sunday (July 8).

He said the first meeting of the quota committee was held with cabinet secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam in the chair to determine the work plan.

“At the initial stage, the committee will gather all the information we have on quota system and then sit on the second meeting. We are trying to complete the whole thing within 15 days,” he said.

When asked whether the committee will sit with quota reformists, cabinet secretary Shafiul Alam said the protesters placed different demands on different occasions. They don’t have clear understanding of the matter. Since the Prime Minister wants to make a well-planned decision, the committee will recommend a informative and pragmatic decision in the report.
