Govt job seekers block Shahbagh for raising age limit to 35
Students and job seekers, under the banner of Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Parishad, went out on demonstration at Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka on Saturday demanding to raise the age limit for recruitment in public service to 35 years.
They blocked intersection and chanting slogans to press for their demands.
They said while completing their studies, a student becomes at least 27 to 28 years old and they get hardly two or three years to get a government job. They said the age-limit should be extended to 35 years from existing 30 years.
