DHAKA, AntiCorruption Commission (ACC) chairman Iqbal
Mahmood today said corruption must be uprooted to build 'Golden Bangla' as
dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Corruption must be eliminated to build Golden Bangla as dreamt by
Bangabandhu . . . we have to build a corruption free country for the new
generations, Mahmood said while speaking at a programme organised in
observance of the National Mourning Day and 44th martyrdom anniversary of
Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The ACC chairman said it would be possible to pay true respect to the
Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, if corruption related
investigations rise above all sorts of lust and greed.
He said the ACC can bring a positive change in the society and the
countrymen also believe so. Over 31 lakh people lodged complaints through
ACC's hotline206 in the last two years because they have confidence in the
ACC, he said, adding that the ACC could be a symbol of trust to the people if
its officials perform their duties properly and sincerely.
All corruption related investigations must be completed within the
stipulated time, he said, adding that if this procedure is not maintained,
the corrupt people will get scope to continue their dishonest activities
which in turn will build a negative image for the ACC.
We all have to change our mentality positively and discharge our
responsibilities properly being imbued with the importance and spirit of the
national mourning day, said the ACC chairman.
ACC secretary Muhammad Delwar Bakht, director general AKM Sohel and
directors Syed Iqbal Hossain and Md Akhter Hossain spoke at the discussion,
