Minister Nahid said work on setting up one university in each district is going on in full swing
Bangladesh Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said there are full-fledged universities in 43 districts out of 64 across the country.
“Full-fledged universities would be established in rest of the districts in phases,” the minister told House in reply to a question from BNP lawmaker Lutfur Rahman.
Paying attention towards prime minister’s commitment, Nahid said work on setting up one university in each district of the country is going on in full swing.
“As part of its continuation, a number of public and private universities have already been established in some districts,” he added.
Responding to another question from ruling party lawmaker Nurul Islam Bsc, the education minister said six government colleges and 11 government secondary schools are being set up in capital to raise the scope for quality education of students, reports BSS.
Nahid, however, said there is no such a plan for time being to establish such educational institutions in Chittagong. But the issue could be considered in future taking into account the population and reality, he added.
