“We will send a letter to the PSC by tomorrow telling them about the number of vacant positions at government-run secondary schools, Ruhi Rahman, joint secretary of the education ministry, told The reporters.
She said: “We hope we will get consent from the PSC to initiate the recruitment process before the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr.”
