The High Court yesterday set January 14 for pronouncing judgment on rule issued over giving 285 dif-ferently able candidates appointment as assistant teacher in government primary schools as per 10 per-cent quota for them.
“Hearing concluded and judgment on January 14 in 2024,” said a High Court division bench comprising Justice Naima Haider and Justice Kazi Zinat Hoque after holding hearing on rule issued over four sepa-rate writ petitions filed in this regard.
Advocate Mohammad Siddiq Ullah Miah moved the pleas before the court, while advocate Muntasir Uddin Ahmed stood for Directorate of Primary Education.
“The petitioners applied for the post of assistant teacher under quota for differently abled candidates fol-lowing a recruitment notification of Directorate of Primary Education on October 18, 2020. But when the final result of the recruitment test came out on December 14, 2022, it was found that no such candi-dates were appointed,” Advocate Miah told newsmen.
The lawyer further said 285 candidates later filed four separate writ petitions and after holding hearing on the plea, the High Court issued the rule.
