Transaction in taka has increased. But the unfortunate thing is that education is also being made part of this transaction. The trade of education has now become an open secret.

Banker’s helplessness

Regardless of the rules and regulations to provide service in the banking sectors, bankers often risk their career for the protection of banks. These situations make them helpless.

Students’ politics to be controlled by students

Only genuine students who are meritorious can take responsibility of politics. Politics is not a thing to play.
