Education minister to exchange view with journalists on Tuesday

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni will sit with the noted media personality of mass media on Tuesday to discuss the issue of providing MPO to new institutes.

“She will sit in the view-exchange meeting with the noted media personality of mass media at International Mother Language Institute in the capital at 2:00 pm”, said the education ministry’s public relations officer Mohammad Abul Khair.

Earlier on Sunday night, the protesting Non-MPO teachers sat in a meeting with education minister Dr Dipu Moni at International Mother Language Institute in the capital over the enlistment of their institutions under the Monthly Pay Order (MPO) system.

After the meeting, the minister urged the teachers to go back to the classrooms pledging to implement their demand for the MPO scheme. But the protesting teachers are not happy with the pledge of the minister.

The teachers and employees of non-MPO educational institutions on Monday started a hunger strike for an indefinite period in front of the national press club demanding a specific time to hold a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to place their demands.
