Dipu Moni hints at reopening of educational institutions soon

Education Minister Dipu Moni on Friday hinted at the possibility of reopening educational institutions following the downtrend of covid cases in the country.

“The positivity rate is decreasing day by day and, hopefully, all the educational institutions will be reopened soon,” she said at a view exchange programme with the leaders of Sylhet district and city unit of Awami League at Sylhet Circuit House.

Meanwhile, the minister said the government is making every effort to solve the problems of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST). “In this case, students have rights as well as responsibilities. All problems can be solved through discussion.”

She added that issues like SUST’s occur in almost all public universities.

The education minister also remarked that initiatives are being taken to solve the problems of all public universities through national initiatives.

Apart from Dipu Moni, Deputy Education Minister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel and Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmed are slated to hold meetings with the students, teachers and different SUST organisations between 4pm and 7pm.

Earlier, a three-member ministerial team, led by Education Minister Dipu Moni, arrived in Sylhet Friday morning to hold talks with the protesting students of SUST.
