The parliamentary standing committee on social welfare on Thursday recommended that the government should special measures to appoint visually impaired educated people as resource teachers at the Department of Social Services.
The body in its 3rd meeting discussed the issue and recommended amendment to the appointment rules of the social welfare ministry.
It suggested the respective minister and secretary to discuss the issue with the Public Service Commission to settle the issue urgently.
The commission in April issued a circular for appointment of 45 resource teachers from general applicants though the visually impaired educated youths demanded the jobs for them.
The standing committee recommendations came at a time when the visually impaired job seekers were on indefinite hunger strike in front of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban for jobs, including in the post of resource teachers.
The visually impaired job seekers went on an indefinite hunger strike on Wednesday to press home their demands, including special recruitment in government, autonomous and semi-autonomous offices, recruitment as resource teachers, and Tk 10,000 for visually impaired unemployed graduates.
