The education minister said this while replying to a starred question from ruling Awami League MP AKM Rahmatullah (Dhaka-11).

She said the issue of formulation of a policy and the formation of a single Qawmi education board combining the existing six separately-run boards is under the government's review.

There are now 19,199 Qawmi madrasas across the country, Dipu Moni added.
