Call to raise awareness against corruption

GAIBANDHA: A public hearing of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on public services was held on the premises of Independent Square of the town here yesterday aiming to raise mass awareness against corruption. ACC’s Coordinated District Office, Rangpur, and the World Bank jointly arranged the function with support from the district administration. ACC commissioner AFM Aminul Islam, its director (Rajshahi divisional office) Abdul Aziz Bhuyan, superintendent of police (SP) Mashruqur Rahman Khaled, mayor of Gaibandha Municipality Shah Masud Zahangir Kabir Milon and Sadar UNO Rafiqul Islam, among others, spoke at the public hearing with deputy commissioner Gautam Chandra Pal in the chair. Earlier, president of ACC’s District Corruption Prevention Committee Prof Moklesur Rahman delivered welcome speech.

The speakers said the public hearing will undoubtedly play an effective role to change the mindset of all the government officials and the employees to ensure transparency and accountability in performing their duties.

ACC commissioner AFM Aminul Islam said people are being deprived of getting public services due to corruption and negligence of some dishonest and unscrupulous government officials, which is ultimately hampering the country’s development.

Due to the active participation of common people alongside the officials concerned, the public hearings have become an effective tool in checking graft in public sector, he said.

Aminul warned that the national anti-graft body will not hesitate to take harsher action against corrupt government officials in the coming days if they do not change their mindset.

About 100 allegations on different offices, including land, sub-registrar, settlement, electricity, BRTA, passport, relief, treasury, education, and health ones, were placed at the hearing.
