The public universities were the Dhaka University, Chittagong University, Rajshahi University and the Khulna University and all the colleges, whatever it is private or government, were under the universities.
After establishing the National University, all the colleges have gone under it. For a better system and maintain the quality of education, recently the government has taken initiative to transfer the government colleges under the country’s public universities and the private colleges remain under the National University. But the teachers and the employees of government colleges do not want this change. They want to be kept under the National University.
