Siddiqur to get job in health ministry: Nasim


PV Desk : Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim today said Siddiqur Rahman, the college student whose eyes were damaged during a demonstration in the capital recently, would get a job in the Health Ministry after he returns back to the country.

“The government will help Siddiqur to get rehabilitated. I will give him a job in my ministry on his return to the country from India whether he gets back his eye sight or not,” he said.

He was speaking as the chief guest at a seminar titled, ‘Chikungunya: Dhaka Experience – 2017’ at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) seminar hall in city’s Shahbagh area.

“We will try our level best so that he can get back his vision. If doctors suggest, Siddiq’s eyes will also be operated,” he added.

Siddiqur, a third-year student of political science, was injured during a demonstration of the students of seven Dhaka University-affiliated colleges at Shahbagh last month.
