Lt. Gen. (retd) M. Harun Ar Rashid, Bir Pratik Only some FFs benefitted from the quota system
After the liberation war, the government introduced us with thirty percent quota facility for the freedom fighters. How many freedom fighters have been benefitted by the quota system after these many years of liberation? The number of freedom fighters is high in remote areas, most of whom are low middle class. Farmers and workers are the most of who fought in the liberation war. Quota system was introduced for freedom fighters in the remote areas, so that they could earn and manage food for them selves using the system. If you do a statistic from the time this quota trend started till today, though I didn’t o it; I have asked many, my question is how many freedom fighters have been benefitted from the quota system? A very limited number. As a freedom fighter if I get benefit, then I have been already benefitted. I have a passage. After my ascension, my child is not supposed to get this same facility, because I have come to a position by taking the benefit. I don’t need it; the one who needs the facility should be given. There is a big politics with freedom fighter quota and children of freedom fighter quota. For what, there are applications for being a freedom fighter even today, because you have given the government quota system. Freedom fighters cannot be born every day.
