Anti-Quota ProtestAttorney general urges quota reform protesters to have patience

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin on Monday said that the university students protesting against the quota system in public service recruitment should have patience and avoid public demonstrations while the Supreme Court discusses the matter.

A hearing on a government appeal seeking cancellation of the quota system is pending at the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, and the government would get a chance to file a leave to appeal plea on Thursday, the chief government law official said at his office at Supreme Court in the capital.

If the full text of a 4 July Appellate Division order is published earlier, the government would file the leave to appeal plea on Wednesday, the attorney general said apparently attempting to urge the students that the government is on their side for the time being.

An issue that is undergoing legal proceedings at the court should not be brought up for street demonstrations, the attorney general said.
