Action to be taken, if educational institutions reopened defying govt order: Nowfel

Deputy Education Minister Barrister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel said the government will take stern action if any educational institutions are kept open violating the government order.

He made the comment to journalists after receiving the second dose of corona vaccine at Chattogram Medical College Hospital (CMCH) Thursday noon.

The deputy minister said the cabinet has decided not to reopen the educational institutions amid sharp rise of COVID-19 cases across the country.

“The police administration has already been instructed in this regard. Police will monitor the matter strictly from today (Thursday). Action will be taken against those who will keep the educational institutions open without following the government instructions,” he added.

Regarding the Qawmi Madrasa, Barrister Nowfel said that the government has given the highest degree of Qawmi education an equivalent status of Master’s degree.

Earlier, the deputy education minister inaugurated the second dose of the corona vaccine distribution programme at CMCH this morning.

Director of CMCH Hospital Brigadier General SM Humayun Kabir, Director of Health Dr. Hasan Shahriar Kabir, President of Chattogram Press Club Alhaj Ali Abbas and Chattogram Medical College Principal Prof. Sahena Akhtar, among others, attended the function.
