Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said the quota system in government jobs for freedom fighters’ children and grandchildren will continue, reports UNB.

The Prime Minister made the announcement at a time when a section of students and job-seekers are agitating seeking reform of the quota system in government jobs.

"We must have a special system for freedom fighters as we've got our independence because of their sacrifice," she said while addressing a public rally at Patiya Model High School.

Chittagong South Awami League organised the rally at the place where Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman delivered speech in 1969, 1970 and 1973 while Jawaharal Nehru in 1943.

Sheikh Hasina said we should remember the people of the country got their long-cherished independence for the sacrifice of freedom fighters. "We've to give their due honour, we've arranged the quota system so that their children and grandchildren could get job."

If anyone is not found to fill the quota then the system will be relaxed to fill those with other brilliant students, she said.

"If the freedom fighters had not sacrificed for the independence then there would have been no job for the people of this land," she said.

Held with Chittagong South AL president  Moslem Uddin Ahmed in the chair, the rally was also addressed, among others, by AL general secretary Obaidul Kader, AL presidium member and Housing and Public Works Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain, AL Publicity Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud, MP,  and State Minister for Land Saifuzzaman Chowdhury.

Earlier, the Prime Minister inaugurated and laid the foundation stones of 41 development projects.
