Noted educationists and human rights activists have demanded absorption of the teachers, instructors and assistant librarians of 42 colleges which have been nationalised recently.
In a statement, 18 noted educationists and rights activists have said that the government nationalised 42 colleges from 2009 to 2016 and 283 colleges were in line; but around 300 teachers, instructors, assistant librarians and other staff of the colleges were kept out of the absorption process.
The civic platform, in the press statement, have said that the teachers and education workers of the colleges have been teaching and doing other works as service rules and will continue these works until their retirement.
These people have huge contribution to the process of nationalising their respective institutions, the statement says, adding that keeping them out of absorption is illogical.
The noted educationists and rights activists include Professor Mesbah Kamal, Professor Abul Hashem Khan, Syed Hasan Imam, Kamal Lohani, Mujahidul Islam Selim, Rana Dasgupta, and Pankaj Bhattacharya.
The citizen platform has urged the education and public administration ministries to absorb the teachers, instructors and assistant librarians of the recently nationalised colleges.
