SC upholds HC verdict declaring appointment of 1,650 DAE staff legal

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court  (SC) today scrapped an appeal, challenging a High Court (HC) verdict  declaring an appointment of 1,650 sub-assistant agriculture officers at the  Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) legal.

  An Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain  passed the order, clearing legal bar for those 1,650 people to join duty.

  Senior lawyer Barrister Rokanuddin Mahmud moved the plea before the court,  while Attorney General AM Amin Uddin and Additional Attorney General Sheikh  Mohammad Morshed stood for the state.

   The High Court on September 16 passed the verdict after holding hearing on  a writ filed in this regard. 

  The government on January 23, 2018, issued a circular for recruiting 1,650  sub-assistant agriculture officers and released the result of recruitment  test on January 17, 2020. But many candidates, who failed in viva, first  lodged complaints with Agriculture Secretary and DAE director general and  later filed writ with the High Court.
