ACC chief for uprooting graft to build Golden Bangla

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,

among others.
