Journos, media owners have to show compromising attitude for wage board: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday urged journalists and media owners to show compromising attitude from their respective sides in implementing the 9th wage board.

The minister said meetings and discussions are not enough to have any positive outcome. And the existing problem will not be resolved by filing cases only.

Obaidul Quader made the remark at a press briefing held at his ministry office in the capital on Thursday.

The minister said, “We have to see the interests of the journalists. Also, we have to be thoughtful regarding the interests of the media owners.”

“Everybody has to understand the real fact. All have to come forward with realistic approach. The problem will not be solved, if journalists and media owners take rigid stance from their respective positions in connection with the implementation of the wage board,” he added.
