FF quota reform not possible, PM tells JS - National
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina speaking at the Parliament on Thursday (July 12, 2018)

Dhaka: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said it is not possible to reform freedom fighter quota in government jobs as there is a High Court verdict to continue it.

“There’s a High Court verdict for maintaining the freedom fighter quota. How can we violate the High Court verdict? We can’t do this,” she said

The premier was addressing her valedictory speech in the 21st (budget) session of the current parliament.

She said, “Earlier, I had said to cancel the entire quota system. But, now there’s a High Court verdict in this regard. If I violate the verdict, I'll face the contempt of court. No one can do this.”

Sheikh Hasina, however, said the vacant posts under quotas will be fulfilled with candidates from the merit list. “This process has been continuing for the last several years.”
