The parliamentary standing committee on liberation war affairs ministry sought replacement of female upazila nirbahi officers (UNO) to provide guards of honour for deceased freedom fighters.
At a meeting on Sunday, the committee recommended the ministry take necessary measures to select other persons to replace female UNOs at guard of honour ceremonies.
The committee also suggested organising guards of honour during daylight hours, said a press release of the parliament secretariat.
These guards of honour are a tribute provided by local administrations to freedom fighters who have died since 1971, in recognition of their contribution to our country's independence.
The parliamentary body also recommended raising the medical allowance for freedom fighters from Tk50,000 to Tk75,000.
The meeting suggested gathering information on the definition of freedom fighters in other countries, the press release said.
The parliamentary body recommended following international rules in recruiting descendants of well-known Rajakars (collaborators of the Pakistan army in the 1971 liberation war) for government jobs.
Presided over by the committee's president Shajahan Khan, liberation war affairs minister AKM Mozammel Haque, Rajiuddin Ahmed, Rafiqul Islam, Kazi Firoz Rashid, Waresat Hussain and Moslem Uddin Ahmed, attended the meeting among others.
