Hanif demands probe of Dr Yunus’s financial transaction

Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbub-ul-Alam Hanif Thrusday blasted Dr. Mohammad Yunus for his link with imaginary allegation of corruption in Padma Bridge project and demanded punishment of those involved with conspiracy against the country.

The Awami League leader made the demand while taking part in the general discussion on the thanksgiving motion of the President Abdul Hamid’s address to the Jatiya Sangsad on January 22.

The ruling party lawmaker also demanded a proper investigation into financial transaction of Dr Yunus, who donated thousands of crore of Taka to foreign organizations instead of standing beside the disaster affected people of Bangladesh.

“It is needed to investigate Dr Yunus’s transaction and audit of the GrameenPhone’s money through international audit firms as a large
amount of money drawn by Dr Yunus is going out of the country,” he said.

Hanif said those who had brought charges of imaginary corruption in Padma Bridge construction are hatching conspiracy against the state and they are the enemy of the country and the people.

The AL leader said the conspirators should seek apology to the national as judges of the Canadian court ruled that the Padma Bridge corruption case was filed on basis of gossip and rumor.

“A group is still hatching conspiracy to make the country a failed state by destroying its progress and Dr Yunus is also related with this,” he said.

Posing a question, Hanif said where does the money of GrameenPhone go and where it is spent? He said none is above the law and Dr Yunus should be brought to book.

Referring to conviction of two Nobel laureates, Hanif said the government should bring Dr Yunus under trial as he is an interest monger and anti-state element. He said social media disseminate false and fabricated reports that social business of Dr Yunus has reduced poverty in the country.

He said a gentle breeze is now blowing in the Chittagong Hill Tracts after signing the peace agreement in 1998 between the government and tribal insurgents. Bangalees are now living in hill areas peacefully, he added.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize as she signed a rare agreement in the world, Hanif said.

Talking about 15 February, he said Begum Khaleda Zia held a general election without voters on this day in 1996 and she was forced to step down within 45 days, adding, “Her regime is liable to destroy the country’s electoral system. They are not eligible for speaking on polls.”

The Awami League constituted the Election Commission through a transparent process and this government enacted 31 laws for strengthening the Election Commission. The President formed a search committee by discussing with 30 political parties and the President constituted the Election Commission considering recommendations of the search committee, Hanif said.

He said the BNP tried to make the Election Commission controversial by raising questions. The next poll would be held as per the constitution and under the present government.

The Awami League leader said BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia wrote an article to the Washington Post suggesting withdrawal of the GSP facility of Bangladesh.

Earlier, he paid heartfelt tributes to the memory of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibbur Rahman, four national leaders, martyred freedom fighters and also those who had made supreme sacrifices during the War of Liberation and all subsequent democratic movements in the country.

Hanif said that the present government is relentlessly working for advancing the national economy in a faster pace by speeding up development in all sectors aimed at turning Bangladesh as a middle- income country by 2021.

He said the tremendous development carried out continuously in all sectors has raised the living standard of all in Bangladesh and earned appreciation from the international community for the government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Thanking the President, he said his speech was a statement that amply focused on the tremendous development already done in the overall economy during the last eight years.

While taking part in the discussion treasury and opposition bench members said that the current pace of development of the country would be continued under the bold and dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

They said the development programmes of the present government are being considered as a role model across the world.

Lawmakers Abul Kalam Azad, AKM Shahjahan Kamal, AKMA Awal Saidur Rahman, Monirul Islam, Begum Fazilatunnesa Bappy, Habibey Millat, Talukder Mohammad Yunus and opposition bench members Selim Uddin and Peer Fazlur Rahman also took part in the discussion.
