Health Desk: 15th Oct’18: Physically challenged protesters demanding reservation of five percent quota for them in class-I and class-II government jobs on Sunday postponed their Shahbagh blockade programme temporarily, following the “Administration's Assurance”.
According to the sources, Ali Hossain, convener of the platform spearheading the protest, made the announcement from a press conference held at the Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka at around 5:30pm.
“Many of us have fallen ill. People in the administration have told us that the government is considering our demands with priority. We will discontinue the sit-in and continue our protest through different programmes,” said Ali Hossain.
They said they would also submit a memorandum to the prime minister on Monday and hold a roundtable over their demands later this month.
