Popular News

The government has transferred the deputy commissioner (DC) of Jamalpur, Md Imran Ahmed, to the Ministry of Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment.

A notification issued by the public administration ministry on Thursday said Imran Ahmed was made the deputy secretary of the ministry.

On the other hand, Bangladesh Civil Service Administration Academy's deputy director (deputy secretary) Md Shafiur Rahman was appointed as the deputy commissioner of Jamalpur.

The orders issued in the public interest will come into effect immediately, the notification reads.

Earlier, Imran Ahmed made comments about the upcoming election, saying that ‘the incumbent government of Awami League has to be brought to power again in the next parliamentary elections to continue the development spree’.

He said this while speaking at a ceremony on Monday (11 Sept) afternoon in Jamalpur to inaugurate the newly built Madarganj pourashava building.

A video of the statement began circulating on social media platforms from Tuesday morning and sparked criticism because of such comments despite being a public servant.
