The Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) authorities have postponed recruiting medical officers (MOs) in the face of protests by job-seekers over alleged irregularities in the recruitment process.

"The recruitment process has been postponed. Other decisions will be finalised at a meeting of the syndicate committee," said Prof. Kanak Kanti Barua, vice-chancellor of BSMMU. The decision has been taken to keep the university's image exalted, he added. Medical officer aspirants are on protest demanding re-examination, accusing the authorities of irregularities.   

According to sources, on June 9 (Sunday), around 15 protesting job-seekers, who have been staging demonstrations claiming massive corruption in the recruitment test, were admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) after being baton-charged and obstructed by the police and Ansar members. Later, as many as 50 job-seekers continued the protest until yesterday (Tuesday). This time, they demanded the resignation of the VC.  Later, the university authorities postponed the recruitment of MOs, said the sources.

On Monday, viva voce of 20 candidates who passed the written tests for MO and dental surgeon posts took place. The appointment has been cancelled.

“We demand a re-test and resignation of the BSMMU VC. Our demonstration will continue until demands are met,” said a job-seeker, wishing anonymity.

On March 22, the written exam for MOs was held, in which 8,557 candidates took part. The results, published on May 12, showed that 820 candidates had been selected. From among them, 200 medical officers would be recruited.

Unsuccessful candidates alleged that there were gross irregularities in the exam. These included leak of the question paper. Violating condition of recruitment, some BSMMU officials, whose relatives were candidates, were involved in the exam process, they said.
