Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Saturday urged the BNP-led 20-party alliance not to enforce hartal on the days scheduled for SSC examinations.
"BNP can call hartal for any other days except the examination days," the minister said this while visiting Chittagong Collegiate School examination centre around 10am.
Requesting BNP to withdraw hartal Nahid said, "I again humbly request the 20-party alliance to pave the way for easily taking examinations of 15 lakh students withdrawing the shutdown. They can call hartal for any other days instead of the exams days."
