Nahid said there was huge scope to improve the quality of the country's education and they were working to do so.
He also said, ‘Last year I face widespread criticism over the issue for question leak but I took those positively and tried my best involving other concerned to stop the problem. After that we got success.’
Nahid said at least 250 criminals were arrested for their involvement in question paper leak and no one would be speared who were involved in the wrongdoing.
He stressed the need for creating strong sense of morality among the new generation alongside their good academic results.
