Who are involved in graft?

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader urged the govt to publish the white paper of corruption in the energy sector.

“White paper of corruption in energy sector will have to be published. People of the country want to know every year, who are involved in corruption in the energy sector. The list of those involved in corruption should be published,” he said.

The Jatiya Party chief came up with the statement while addressing the biennial council session of Mirpur and Shah Ali thana units of the party in the capital’s Mirpur area on Friday. Jatiya Party vice chairman Jahangir Alom Pathan chaired the programme.

GM Quader, also deputy leader of the opposition in Parliament, also demanded to bring the people who are involved in corruption of the country’s energy sector to book.

“The government is telling that it is giving subsidy in        the fuel price. Actually, the government didn’t give any subsidy.  The government has made profit of Tk 42 thousands crore in few years, if the price of fuel was adjusted with that money, the fuel price would not have increased. The government has cheated the people of the country by increasing the fuel price,” he added.

Addressing on the occasion, the party co-chairman ABM Ruhul Amin Howlader said the government yet to take any initiatives to face the recession in the world due to Russia-Ukraine war.
