State now ‘backing corruption’: BNP

The BNP Standing Committee criticized the prime minister's remarks regarding the destruction of 300 homes under the Ashrayan-2 Project. It claimed that the state is now "supporting corruption". BNP stated that the premier's comment about having the list of people who damaged the houses was tantamount support for the corruption of Awami Liga-backed contractors and partisan bureaucrats involved in the project. BNP claimed that the AL government gave corruption an institutional shape at a weekly virtual meeting held on Saturday. Yesterday's press release stated this. The PM claimed that someone damaged the houses given by her government for homeless people. Photos were published by the media showing the broken houses. After an investigation, Hasina claimed that she had obtained the names of the perpetrators. BNP also condemned statements of the state minister to information on the removal of the museum named after Ziaur Rahman from the Chattogram circuit house. "

Natore sugar mill workers stage demo against transfer

The Bangladesh Sugar Food Industries Corporation directed the transfer of 61 workers from the country's closed sugarmills to different posts at the North Bengal Sugar Mill. Humayun Kabir, North Bengal Sugar Mill's managing director, told New Age he received transfer letters from 61 workers at another closed sugar mill. A procession of around 100 workers and employees protested the decision. They also held a brief rally in front the mill. They stated that they would lose jobs if the workers from the closed mills were to join the Lalpur mill. They also requested that the authorities involved withdraw the transfer order, and appoint those who have been in these posts for a while. They sought to have the prime minister intervene so that no mill worker or employee would be fired.
