Protesters reject SC decision, vow to continue blockade



Abdul Hannan Masud, a coordinator of the anti-discrimination student movement, said, "We are not accepting any 'pending decision'."

"Our one-point demand is, Parliament should pass a law and cancel all types of discriminatory quotas by keeping a minimum (maximum 5 per cent) quota for backward communities in all grades of government jobs."

He said these in an instant reaction on Wednesday after the Appellate Division issued a one-month stay on the High Court ruling.
"We will be on the streets until our one-point demand is met from the executive department," he added.

On the other hand, the Appellate Division has urged the students to return to classes.

It said the students can submit their statement in written form to the court.

The protesters then said that they will remain on the streets until their demand is met.

Meanwhile, Nazmul Hasan, coordinator of the Dhaka College branch of the student movement, said "We reject the judgment given by the Appellate Division. Our sole demand is the abolition of unreasonable quotas in all grades of government jobs. Respecting the constitution, we insist that Parliament pass laws ensuring a logical quota for the backward groups mentioned in the constitution. We will not leave the streets until our one-point demand is fulfilled."
