Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has asked concerned ministries to meet over taking decision on reopening the educational institutions.
"A meeting will be held by next week to form a committee, which will decide about the reopening after observing the current pandemic situation," Cabinet Secretary Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam told media after cabinet meeting today.
Meanwhile, students of different universities, including Dhaka, Rajshahi, Jahangirnagar and Chattogram, have intensified their protests with the demand of reopening halls, which had been kept closed citing pandemic.
The school, colleges and universities were shut in March last year amid the outbreak of dreaded Covid-19 in Bangladesh. Classes and examinations were taken online during the pandemic.
