Newly appointed Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Tuesday said the main challenge of her ministry is to tackle the perennial problem of question paper leakage.
The Education Minister came up with the remark while talking to reporters after joining office at the Secretariat for the first time after taking the oath of office.
“People have elected the government by casting their votes for Awami League with some expectations and we’ll try our best to fulfill that. The government will do whatever is necessary,” she said.
The minister also urged all to work as a team and implement all the election pledges made by the government.
Awami League President Sheikh Hasina along with her 46 cabinet members on Monday took oath following her party Awami League’s massive victory in the 11th national election on December 30.
Apart from the Prime Minister, there are 24 ministers, 19 state ministers and three deputy ministers in the new cabinet.
Of the 47-member cabinet, 27 are new faces who are picked in a bid to infuse dynamism into the cabinet activities to implement the election manifesto the ruling party placed before the nation.
