DHAKA, May 29, 2023 (BSS) - State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak has given a job to Mukta Sultana, who set all her academic certificates on fire during a facebook live recently by being frustrated with failing to manage a job.

The state minister handed over the appointment letter to Mukta offering a salary of Taka 35,000.
