Sector Commanders Forum has demanded restoration and reformation of quota privileges for freedom fighters’ children, females, under representing districts and ethnic minorities and the challenged people.
The Forum issued a statement on Tuesday raising this demand four days after the government abolished the quota system in Class-I and II government jobs through a gazette notification on October 5.
“The quota privileges have been kept there only in class-III and class-IV jobs for freedom fighters’ heirs. This is not only unacceptable but also disrespectful to the freedom fighters, who established the independent Bangladesh risking their lives during liberation war in 1971,” reads the statement.
The freedom fighters’ body also demanded for framing laws which will ensure constitutional recognition of the freedom fighters and safety for their family members.
