Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday urged the agitating students to accept the directive of court about the quota system in the government jobs.

"Be patient; accept the court's directive on quota system. The people will suffer if the students sit on the street blocking movement of transport," he said while speaking at a function of Dhaka district Awami League office in Dhaka’s Tejgaon, reports BSS.

He said the law enforcement agencies will not be strict with students, but the suffering of the people will mount if they occupy city streets.

About the question paper leakage, the home minister said proper action will be taken against those involved in question paper leaks.

Meanwhile, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday expressed hope that the quota issue will be resolved through the final hearing in the country’s apex court in the first week of August.

He also urged the students to abide by the court order and stop the protests on the roads that are causing public suffering.

Quader, also Awami League General Secretary, made the remarks at a press briefing at the Awami League president's office in Dhanmondi, reports UNB.

He said the apex court has issued a status quo on the subject matter and urged protesting students to return to their classes.

The minister said that the court’s decision is final and hopefully it will make a realistic decision.

Regarding teachers’ movement over the Prottoy pension scheme, he said this issue too will be resolved soon.
