Dhaka, Broadcasting News Corporation: Awami League General Secretary and Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam Friday said rule of law must be maintained in the country and all activities here will have to be carried out as per the law.
“There is no alternative but to maintain the law because Bangladesh is a country of rule of law,” the minister said while speaking at the opening ceremony of the two-day representatives’ conference of Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDEB) at its auditorium here.
IDEB President AKMA Hamid presided over the discussion and Chairman of Bangladesh Muktijuddha Command Council Major General (retd) Helal Murshed Khan attended it as special guest. IDEB General Secretary Md Shamsur Rahman delivered welcome speech.
Shamsur Rahman in his speech alleged that there is a directive of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to give special increment to diploma engineers on their joining of the service but no steps are being taken in this regard.
Mentioning this allegation Syed Ashraf said it is not good that the Prime Minister’s directives have not yet been implemented.
“I have to sit with you. It has to be discussed properly why the directives of the Prime Minister are not implemented,” Syed Ashraf told the diploma engineers.
“We don’t want such example. You organize a meeting in this auditorium to discuss it, I will join it,” he added.
“We must look at why the directives of the Prime Minister are not followed. A solution will come out through discussion,” the minister said.
Syed Ashraf also said he will talk to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina about it.
