Cabinet secretary dismisses TIB report over promotion

The cabinet secretary yesterday dismissed a Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) report that claimed promotions are being given to senior government officials on the basis of political consideration. He was briefing journalists after a cabinet meeting at the secretariat. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chaired the meeting at the PMO. “I have not yet seen the TIB report. Like you (journalists), I knew the thing that came in the news. But, the matter is not exactly the same as stated by the TIB in a wholesale manner,” said Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam.  About the TIB claim that wealth reports were not submitted by the government officials in every five year, he said, “We have submitted the reports. It is a rule for the government officials to submit wealth reports in every five year when those are called for.”
