Secretariat Correspondent: Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said all educational institutions will be enlisted under the government's Monthly Pay Order (MPO) facility gradually.

The minister came up with the announcement while addressing a program at the education ministry on Monday.

Aiming the teachers who are staging demonstration, Nurul Islam Nahid said teachers need not to stage demonstration. All qualified educational institutions will be enlisted under the MPO facility.

Meanwhile, the education minister also said corruption in education sector will not be tolerated.

Earlier, teachers under the banner of Non-MPO Educational Institutions’ Teachers and Employees Federation staged demonstration, demanding their inclusion in the Monthly Pay Order. Later, an assurance from the government was given that issue would be included in next budget. But, unfortunately there was no announcement in the recently proposed budget. 

Following the matter, on Sunday, the teachers were seen trying to arrange their sit-in program again at the footpath adjacent to the Press Club to draw attention from PM.
