Info Minister terms TIB, BNP statements on relief committee ‘very irresponsible’
Information Minister Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) and BNP exposed themselves as very irresponsible through their statements over AL relief committee without understanding it properly.
He made this remark before attending the seventh session of the 11th parliament, reports UNB.
Mahmud said the committee will supervise and coordinate the party relief only.
They will not handle the government relief, he clarified.
AL relief committee has nothing to do with distribution activities of government relief, he said, adding that TIB and BNP leader Rizvi made comments without understanding it.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday asked her party men and its associate bodies to quickly form a Relief Committee comprising of party leaders and activists up to ward level across the country.
TIB on Saturday expressed concern over the announcement of forming relief committee by the ruling party at ward level.
