On Wednesday, Ambia Khatun had been replaced as Principal by the Governing body of Viqarunnisa. Students welcomed her. But Husne Ara rejected this decision and said this is illegal. Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid also said, “it is illegal and Husne Ara is still the principal as per law. Also added, there are 11 members in the governing body. The chairman and the acting chairman did not know anything about the meeting when the decision was taken to replace Hosne Ara with Ambia Khatun. It is clear that the meeting was preplanned.” (Source: bdnews24.com)
